A large pub aimed at a young crowd just opposite College Green. It’s fairly nondescript and consequently difficult to find anything interesting to say about it. The best part is I suppose the large area at the back which opens up in to a two story high space with an interesting circular glass panel in the roof (illuminated in changing colours) and some tall black columns against the rear wall.

Possibly if it was tidied up a bit it might all be quite impressive, but the décor is clearly passed it’s best with the paint shabby and the carpet threadbare in places. The central area at the back is raised up a couple of steps, presumably morphing in to a dance floor at the weekend, judging by the various disco lights around the place. Apparently there is a resident DJ on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There is also a mezzanine floor overlooking this that has a small bar counter, although the whole area was shut off on a recent Monday night visit.

At the front there are large folding windows, which completely open up the front of the pub. This can be a pleasant enough spot in the summer, with the view across the green opposite. Several ornate gilded mirrors complete the décor, and there are numerous plasma’s dotted around showing a mixture of sports and news channels.

The solitary beer on tap was Bombadier. Ciders fared slightly better, although they were all of the mass produced, bland, fizzy, nitro-keg variety – Bulmers, Strongbow and Magners Golden Draft.

In the past I have attended the Greenhouse and been impressed by the kindness of members of staff, and have enjoyed my visit.

However this evening I attempted to visit the Greenhouse with my friends, with the intention of spending a lot and having some fun (celebrating!!). However I was refused entrance, for what the manager deems a serious act, the act of wearing three quarter length trousers.

After speaking with the manager, I was told that it is acceptable for women to wear shorts or skirts or even three quarter length trousers. But that it is un-acceptable for a man to wear them, to me that smells of discrimination.

I would no longer recommend this establishment to anyone.

THE best 2-for-1 cocktails ever (highly recommend their Long Island; very strong but tasty). A good place for food during the day, a nice bar in the evening, turning into a club at night (small dance floor though). Usually pop/cheesey/dance music, but it's a nice, clean bar with a good selection of drinks.
