I love the burgers in chocolate. They remind me of the Porterhouse.

Really?! Have never eaten in there, will have to give it a try!

On topic: for a quiet drink I really enjoy the Thomas Moore Tavern in Cornmarket.

Thats something I find a bit sad about our pubs; I was over in London recently enough and the amount of old style, dark, quaint old pubs is quite high, and these are pubs in the City!

Whereas here all pubs seem to be turning into the superpub/club type which is not as cosy...

I have to agree. The old-style pubs in Wexford, as well as everywhere else, are much better. Cosier and better craic too.

Ah, the late Mike Watson, a legend, God rest him. A Scottish Cup winner with Clyde in the fifties, he also played for Celtic when a planned posting to Peru (where he met Cora, an air stewardess as they were called then) was delayed for a few months.

The Sky and the Ground all the way (although having worked there for 4 years i'm a bit biased!) Also like chocolate (but totally agree bout upstairs - not great at all) especially blue monday during the summer... Stores except for saturday night, when moving is obviously considered unnecessary by Monsieur Tierney. Maggie Mays is nice for a couple of quiet ones
