Great pub near central station, we came here for cheap drinks before a short walk to nearby Metro Radio Arena for a concert. Was a Monday night so was pretty quiet so was easy to get a seat on the first floor

Large building with small rooms all over the place. Not too busy and able to get served quickly. Normal bar fare but good and reasonable prices. Just across the road from the station so gets lots of travelers with cases.
