18:00 visit. Easily found near the main bus stops and Hamilton Sq. Stn. A real gem of a pub with the added novelty of an attached barbers shop too! The pictures of times past, that cover the whole pub, are worthy of close perusal alone. Quiet on this visit, but I'd imagine it's very popular at other times. A "must do" when in this area.
