Things picked up around 11pm as a few of the locals came in for a pint. Apart from the locals there was brazen northern couple, they didn't by a drink, but there was a discussion about whether that the Jolly Roger was either associated with 'watchmakers' or 'gold merchants' over on the quiz machine (clue - it was the other option).
I could quite happily come back here in the future, only thing I'd change is to turn off that damn pervading Sky football.
Conveniently set just off the high street on the way to the riverside, this is a nice small youngs pub that really has the ‘proper pub’ feel to it, we sat on the benching round the edge of the bar at a table next to the door and enjoyed a quiet few drinks. Surprisingly trade picked up quite a bit just before most pubs would be calling time, slightly quirky but not in a bad way. An otherwise unremarkable evening but this just added to the night and actually made for a pleasant evening.
