What a great place to call in for a beer an Halloween. Lots of scary creatures in the pub with staff and customers getting into the spirit of the night. Some amazing costumes and skilled makeup..... with a good selection of interesting beers.

Did you have feather boas or ask for freebies ? That'd probably do it…

Came here because my pal only drinks Guinness. No atmosphere, cheaper drinks at much nicer places and it smells intensely of old dog farts. Totally grim. Also we were told they play 'rock' music and they were playing Celine Dion, extremely loudly, seemingly for one...More
