what. a. shit. hole.

toilet reminds me of that scene out of trainspotting - the worst toilet in the world - it could have been filmed there! riviers of piss freely flow around the floor and the smell is, how shall i put this, intoxicating!

and dont get me started on the patrons, geez - if they had a brain cell between them it would be damages through drink abuse!

one to avoid at all cost. going to the supermarket, buying a 6 pack and drinking it in the rain is a more attractive option

shame about this pub - looks OK from the outside, and inside it could be pretty nice if they tidied it up a bit. The toilets though are rank - the piss must have been about an inch deep around my feet

I'm a bit partial to Wishing Well pubs as they remind me of being dragged around pubs in my youth, but this one isnít very good. There is the usual generic draught selection and a few plasmas dotted about with the ability to show every sports channel and there is also a dartboard. I think that the problem with this place was the clientele and the depressingly crap music.

I would walk past If in the area again.

this pub is a total dive

Yet another fake Irish pub - can't understand why even the Irish drink in this dive. A real dump, and the live music is of a terrible karaoke standard.
