Entered up a few steps from street level, this former Devenish Brewery hotel was transformed into an Irish theme bar a number of years ago. Nowadays, apart from the walls being festooned with Ireland-related pictures and posters, and despite its name, it is to the casual eye a normal, rather basic town centre drinkers' pub. Dark varnished wood is the dominant material in the spacious single bar room, whose floor is still covered in much of the original, well-worn planking. Large windows with seating areas overlook the junction of two busy shopping streets; the corner window space is a distinctly separate drinking space where small groups tend to congregate. Upstairs is a separate room in similar style, for drinking and entertainment - a table football, large-screen TV and live music on some evenings are hosted here.
