GreatlyMissed, I accept your right to say that, and if those are your views, fine but sorry, that's not the Uncle Henry's I knew.

I know it is crazy to review a pub that no longer exists, but I have to defend it. This pub was the best pub I have ever known, and what made it was the people. This pub was like going to a house party except that you had to go to a bar to get your drinks. The comments above just show prejudice against people with long hair, tattoos and piercings. Contrary to what is written, it was not a den of the unemplyable and the vast majority of people (even the few unemployed ones) were highly intelligent. Among my friends from there I count a satellite engineer (myself), a neuro-surgeon, tax auditor, financial consultant, couple of council workers, many computer people and many shop and bar staff.

The atmosphere here was always welcoming and understanding, true, everyone knew everyone and hence if someone new walked it, especially if dressed smart, people would turn round and stare, but if you stuck it out for 5 minutes and were friendly to the bar staff and the regulars, you would be accepted as much as anyone else.

True it could get boisterous, a couple of the lads would regularly end up play wrestling and if you happened to position yourself in the way of the pool table, you would have to be asked to move, but there were never fights, there was never the anger and aggression that you see in so many pubs, there was not the prejudice shown by some of the above posters that because you look different you must be an unemployable drug addict.

This pub was fantastic and it is very very sadly missed

Henrys you will be greatly missed; by the unemployable and unwashed. The last time I was unfortunate to frequent this hole I bore witness to a man floating an air biscuit over his cohorts luncheon! I've never seen the like!
