A few drinks sat outside Sinclairs on a sunny Saturday afternoon watching the world go by.. Drinks a good price for city centre. Lovely looking buildings

These 2 buildings are very popular and on a dry day there is plenty of seating for people to eat and drink outside. However, they are surrounded by modern buildings and look a little out of place there despite being original!

It is a great place, pub and restaurant, with opportunity to sit outside when (and if) the sun is out. Located centrally in town, a really nice spot. But most of the others know that as well, so be prepared that it is crowded, and you may have to wait for your drinks.
