You want to get screeched in, this is the place to do it. But it's expensive and crowded. The live music is always nice.

It’s mix of young and old. But there’s always a couple pubs with local music talent instead of rock or C&W. it’s a bit pricey, but for one night just go! Friday’s are the best night after 9 pm
