Now called the Canon

Now known as Molloy's, this is a fairly formulaic Irish pub just opposite the Theatre Royal. It is nonetheless not unpleasant and is in some ways quite cosy with it's low ceiling. Mrs. B. raised a valid point though in asking what made it an Irish pub - apart from the name, and the fact that they sell Guinness (which of course most pubs do), I couldn't really come up with much.

The flooring is mostly wood, although with some colourful inlaid tiles in places and the paintwork is a mixture of red, green and yellow. Fortunately these were in fairly pastel shades and so wasn't as lurid as you might expect. Dark wood panelling was on the lower part of the walls and a couple of plasmas were showing the football although the volume was off and instead there was piped music. Seating was mostly tables and stools, many of them quite high. There was also apparently further seating upstairs.

The menu was extensive and looked to be a fairly typical, low end, pub grub offering. Options such as Ham Egg & Chips, Chicken Tikka Masala, Lasagne and "Chip Shop Style" Battered Sausages were joined by several grills, burgers and pies and most of the mains were around the £6 mark, although many were also available as a "2 for £6.95" deal.

Beer choice was better than might have been expected for an establishment such as this and consisted of Doom Bar, Dorset Brewing Company's Jurassic and Hobgoblin. A fourth pump had a clip for Bath's Spa, but this was apparently coming soon. Ciders were also well represented with Magner's Golden Draught, Stowford Press, Strongbow and Weston's Old Rosie, although it was somewhat disappointing that I had to drink the Stowford Press out of a Strongbow glass.

Pubs with bouncers dont mean trouble.
Thats a ludicrous thing to say.
It is crap, but is is an O'neills, so a cheap watering hole on the meandering path through the hot dry summer Bath savanna, on your way to the Thai balcony after stumbling out of weatherspoons or The Lamb and Lion. whichc used to sellf 99p glasses of wine. Bath used to have a plethora of these drinks offers, which are now illegal. A lot of places - in order to adhere to new licensing laws - replaced these with bouncers.

Ok place for a pint of guinness and some cheap grub-reasonably clean and tidy

This pub was okay and used to have a really good dancefloor and dj on on Fridays and Saturday nights. The bouncers are a recent and concerning addition but I have never seen any fighting or problems. The beer is okay and the venue is okay in the day to watch the footie/rugby. Is no better than reasonable but what do you expect from a theme pub chain?
