Busy town pub3
Fridays and Saturdays are the busiest but the pub is never empty due to its location. From memory i think there are 2 or 3 ale pumps with the rest larger. greene King is always sold and there is usually a guest ale from an ale house from the UK.
Usually best to avoid Thursday nights as they are band night and tend to be extremely loud.
Friday and Saturday nights as you would expect are the busiest nights, with the pub staying open late. Thursdays can also be a busy night with a live band on most weeks, usually local cover bands. Whilst there is also a quiz on most Monday nights.
It is also a great place to watch sports, particularly football. There are several screens and the pub subscribes to both Setanta and Sky. It is certainly the best place to watch football in the town and there is usually a good atmosphere particularly for big games.
