Proper spit and sawdust place with great local characters to chat to over some great Bushy's ales. Ok it has its faults especially the toilet where a nice hole has been kicked into the bottom of the door to let a Manx Cat in but I've not seen it yet!

Can't deny the quality and range of real ales and the staff were friendly enough, but it's a manky place - the sort of place where you want to clean your trousers after sitting down (and even the soles of your shoes after walking on the carpet). The gent's toilet is disgusting, part of the ceiling falling down where there's been a water leak sometime in the past, mould - yuk.

My favourite pub in Douglas. Not owned by Heron & Brearley, this is a grungy locals pub with several small rooms and plenty of character. It probably won't win awards for cleanliness and some may be put off by a slightly raucous atmosphere, which spills out into the alleyway outside. But located in an area where there are several nightclubs, this is seemingly the best real ale pub in Douglas. Beers were Busheys Ruby Mild, Manx Bitter, Old Bushy Tail, Humbug A Winter Warmer & Castletown Bitter, Rudgate Viking Bitter & Green Jack Lurcher Stout. Cider was Old Rosie. You'll probably either love this pub or hate it.

I enjoyed my pint of Bushy's mild and my 2 friends confirmed the bitter was excellent.I liked it but got the feeling it has known better days.

What a great place! I was over to Douglas with my girlfriend for the TT and found this to be the jolliest place we came across. The bar staff, locals and TT folk themselves were all great company and we had such a laugh here every night. A fascinating building with lots of individual bars and a covered area outside in the spacious, cobbled alley added to its character. Excellent selection of beers and a friendly, biker kind of crowd. Set down by the marina where all our favourite pubs were found.
