Now Molly Malone's Irish bar.

Totally awful place. My pint of real ale was appalling, staff terrible and a pointless massive tv screen on with non league football that nobody cared about.

Couldn't wait to get out.

Certainly not a pub for the discerning beer drinker; the beer was undrinkable, but worse than that was the attitude of the staff who just didn't care,

Recently made over as poorly conceived Irish pub ( in Somerset Ffs )
Apart from that its a welcome change to find a decent clean pub serving a good selection of real less and other drink brands.
Comfortable seating. Darts. & pool.
Good luck to the landlords who have saved it from oblivion.
Deserves support from East Taunton .

No longer closed and not re-developed. It's now called Molly Malone's and is being marketed as an "Irish themed inspired venue" ( whatever that means) and comes complete with miserable sour faced bar staff for authenticity.
Ales were just about passable but no more than that.
Ok for those that like that sort of thing.

Closed down and sold, probably for re development. To be honest it was always a poorly run pub and nearly always empty, but its a nice old building and its sad to see it go.
The bad news is that the publicans who ran it into the ground have now moved across town to take on another lame duck of a Taunton pub viz The Crown & Sceptre
They will fit in well there as that place has always been a dump. Its also opposite the so called "Ale House" and the Plough so there will be stiff opposition for the title of Tauntons worst boozer.
