Why review a pub that does not exist ? O'Neils are long gone !

O'Niells are not happy with transforming the inside of their pub into an uncared for mess, they somehow get away with pumping over-amped noise throughout Redhill. They're at the central cross-roads & at night the noise reaches the ring road in all 4 directions.

Seems little point in the council trying to improve the litter strewn, hostile concrete wasteland that Redhill centre becomes at night, while this pub is allowed to turn the centre into a 'blade runner' scene, by swamping the echoing centre with an audio ghetto soundtrack.

Another steadily declining horror story. Back when it was the Wheatsheaf, a terrific place to go for a good time. Several refurbishments later, a horrible, filthy venue for drunken punch-ups. Class A dealers operated here. Haven't been inside for a good seven years or so.

This place has become a dirty hole since it was debranded. I wish whoever it may concern would stump up the cash for a refurb soon, or get out and let someone with the cash do it.

I went in here last week for a swifty after work. most of the draught beer was off and the back area was all taped off, I think they may have a problem with flooding in the cellar. I stuck to bottled Bulmers and dropped 75 out of the frooty and left so no too bad an experience

Best of the bunch in Redhill IMHO (though how much does that say ?). Better crowd than most at the weekends as the doorstaff seem to turn away the chavs you seem to get all over the rest of Deadhill. Went in there a couple of thursdays ago for the band night - not bad, lively atmosphere for jan, tho' some of the punters look a bit on the scary side! Nice to see someone doing weekly music tho

A potentially decent place in a prime site, spoiled by its bland and now emphatically dated theming, with all the usual faux "Oirish" regalia that one expects from this brand. It's somewhat typical of Redhill that one of its pubs received the O'Neill's treatment just as all the others in most other places had run their course and were being closed/re-branded! Before that it was a Firkin, but at least you could get a decent pint of Dogbolter then. Prior to that it was the Wheatsheaf which whilst more "honest" was in need of some brightening up. It's just a shame that a corporate pubco got hold of it first.
No decent beer. People generally under 25 - fine if one wants to limit one's conversation to that of the average student. Devoid of true atmosphere. Dull.

O'Dear's, too bright and sterile, rude fruity. I reckon they should amend drop the "No baseball cap" policy, and instead replace it with a "Balaclavas mandatory" one........

Currently an O'Neills pub (its been a firkin & the wheatsheaf previously). Its a bit more expensive than the other pubs in town, which keeps away most the trouble makers. Not bad a a few drinks - average.

Not bad. Not good, either. Bland beer, though not nasty.

So, average then.

A little pricey, and you need to check your change if served by the girls.

But Deadhill you could do much, much worse.

The baseball cap message is a little disconcerting. Though its so people can be identified easily, dont know how much trouble they get here. You do wonder!

Nice in summer with big windows opendownstairs. Can get hot and cramped when busy, get a seat upstairs if poss. ginat Jenga a right laugh. always had a friendly time, thought the 'no hats inside' sign - to ensure all pikeys faces are caught on CCTV - demonstrates the potential of Redhill's notoriously violent undertones. Learn Irish word for 'Gents' if you dont wana walk into the Ladies like my mate!

Gets quite busy at the weekends, quite difficult to get a seat and often have to squeeze your way to the bar.

A lot of gyppos downstairs but as long as you don't tread on their earrings they're ok.

Good music, often live bands (Saturdays I think). Gets quite smokey and hot. Expensive drinks but it's a nice atmosphere so they're worth it. Lush Guinness.

Giant Jenga and connect 4.

Friendly and fairly efficient staff, nice food and a table service (food and drink) available.

Went there for 02/03 new years, 'twas awesome.
