The staff at this pub are quite possibly some of the rudest people I have met in a while, with the exception of one of the barmaids there on my last visit. When I ordered a drink for my partner, they gave me the wrong drink and did not seem happy about replacing it for what I had asked for. One barman in particular obviously did not want to be spending his evening working there and it showed through his attitude which other people around me at the bar also commented on.
It's dirty, it's dreary and to top it off, my pint was flat. I most definitely would not recommend ever stepping foot in this establishment ever again, not even for a stag.

Visited for a late lunch mid week. Pretty quiet with a steady trickle of customers. Plenty of keg but no ale, settled for a cheap bottle of red wine and a daytime special of sausage and colcannon. The bangers are definitely the best in main street pubs at the moment.
A pretty average place with better clients than the Monks Retreat across the way.

It's an O'Neill's, so you pretty much know what you are going to get. Large, with OK-ish food - the Irish breakfast is hearty, the drinks selection is mediocre in the extreme, with just Smithwicks as a proper ale on tap. The place is relatively inoffensive when quiet but when busy for a match, can be wild westish. The amount of "Big Four" supporters in a town like this with its own club is truly upsetting - we visited when Reading clinched the Championship title and were told to keep the noise down. Would that happen in any other town that had waited over a hundred years for Premier League football?

Iíd not been in here for about 6 years and unfortunately the place hasnít changed, itís still an OíNeillís.

I had a very quick pint as the bouncer wouldnít let my stone cold sober, six foot four, 25 year old bearded brother in as he had no id on him. I didnít really mind though as I couldnít believe we had arranged to meet there anyway.
