|A big roomed bar that advertises the various drinks on offer and that you shouldn't be getting too drunk. Lady behind the bar was friendly. There are no ales but they have Theakston Mild, Shipyard Pale Ale, Guinness and a few bottles of ale in the fridge. My pint of Theakston Mild was quite nice and at 2.30 a pint I'd have a few of them no problem. The Music that was on was a bit too loud. Quite dead considering the street is meant to attract students, but then again the other bars looked quite dead as well. Also look out for 'Steve', he will come talk to you and seems friendly enough but will ask you for a drink, say no and he'll bugger off.|

|This pub is now called O'Brien's. Although, the windows are still etched with the previous name. I didn't notice any blinds and the pub was nowhere near as bad as I expected. There are no real ales, just a selection of keg beverages - Fosters, Heineken, John Smiths Original & Extra Cold, Guinness Original & Extra Cold, Strongbow Original & Pear, Kronebourg and a Chestnut Ale. Service was friendly. The gents toilet is one of the narrowest I have ever seen.|

|As in the photo - the blinds are always closed.|
Went here years ago with some work mates. It's as rough inside as the exterior suggests. There was a large group of 40-something woman singing karaoke and dancing on the tables (I kid you not!).
I remember having a pint of John Smiths which only cost £1.60.
I expect it's still £1.60 a pint and probably has the same drunken clientele that now all congregate outside smoking.
Go next door to the Jacaranda for normality!
