Ventured in here on a recent evening, and was immediately disappointed on getting to the bar and discovering the real ale offering was Doom Bar or Pedigree. A two further pumps were off. Well by the time you reach the bar you kind of feel committed so I went for the Doom Bar as I haven't had a pint of that for a while. £3.15 for the pint. It took the barman a few attempts to pour it properly and allow it to settle - I thought he was about to tell me it was off but he persevered and I eventually ended up with a pint. It tasted OK, but I would not say more than OK. I perhaps should have gone for a Guinness, which I can only assume is their flagship offering due to the number of pumps dedicated to it.

It's quite a big pub, was quiet on my visit and seemed a bit lacking in atmosphere. I can imagine it gets a bit busy at the weekend though.

Not especially welcoming, the ale selection was poor - nothing for me to rush back for unfortunately.

Appalling customer service. The hostile barmaid (dark haired, 30's, northern accent) needs to be relieved of her duties immediately. Incompetent, lazy, and a sense of self-importance...

The female member of security should be removed too..

It is not acceptable that a young couple like me and my girlfriend cannot go to an Irish themed pub (I was born and raised in Galway, pity none of the staff were, they would have learned manners), for a quiet drink on a Friday night without being made unwelcome from the moment of entry.

We left after I was refused service for apparently "falling asleep at the bar", when I clearly walked up to the bar wide awake, spoke to a fellow customer for a couple of minutes (the service isn't exactly prompt), and made my order....

But I understand her point. I mean, you'd never see an O'Neills employee act up in another licensed premises.........

Having just walked out of Revolution for obvious reasons, we wandered down the road, heard a live band and made the obvious choice of walking into this place.

The previous reviews may well be a little old, but theyíre definitely not off the mark. ĎFat farmí and Ďtanked up lower ordersí cannot be improved upon for veracity of comment, so I wonít try and do any better.

Strangely then, I found it immediately enjoyable. Although I canít decide how much of that was purely down to the fact there was live music. Either way, we got served straight away by amiable enough bar staff and werenít surrounded by annoying poser City Boys, so I think that counts as a successful trip to a pub on Broad Street.

I know Iíll return to this place, so thatís gotta get a 6/10 for above average, right?

Glad to report after months away from this place that the hen/stag parties of drunken revellers, Barry the DJ, bloke selling perfume in the gents, middle aged men checking their watches `cause the missus don`t trust them to be out after 12.00 is all still in place.

Ok during the week, does the standard JDW meals and must say the Thursday night hot chicken massala is, with a side portion of bombay spuds is better, in terms of price and quality than some of the balti houses nearby.
Avoid at the weekend, has a bloke in the gents selling toiletries, and it attracts the tanked up lower orders, having a cheap pre Flares pint, who are too tight to go in the Walkabout, O'Neills or the Sports Bar.
