Where will i get a decent pub meal in the city centre on a Saturday about 5pm? Somewhere quiet, ie no BIG SCREEN SPORT and a bunch of rowdy cunts watching the rugby or with jeff stelling bellowing out the football results in the background.

Blackfriar's has been pretty nifty every time I've been (the last time was almost a year ago, though). Pleasant atmosphere and not too many lairy lads roaming around the place. Might be pretty busy on a Saturday, though.

Aye the globe or ma's seem like good options. At least in the globe there's tables right up the back away from the sport. I'm not a fan of blackfriars, last time i was in there the food was ming and i said i wouldn't go back. How is the illicit still for food? I didn't know the howff did food.

Food in the Howff is awesome! Massive portions for very reasonable prices :)

McGinty's, where Frankensteins used to be, is pretty good. Much better than Frankensteins used to be. Though it'll have football/rugby on.

To be honest you'll be hard pressed to find somewhere that's not showing sport today.

I went to the Illicit Still on Wednesday, had a burger that shot grease on my hand and burnt it and then I had to sit through the Dons game with stomach ache...not sure if that was the food though.

Yeah I thought it was good value as well. 8 for a beef pie that resulted in a plate FULL of beef, rather than the massive bit of pastry hiding a few small lumps of meat that I usually expect in a pub.

Ok, it's expensive if you're used to eating in those shit pubs that have "classics" for 2.99. But the quality is far better.

I'd much rather pay what food is worth and get a decent meal than get a bargain that's fucking rank.

Slain's isn't bad for food at all. It's not exactly fine dining, it's just burgers and grill etc, but it's darn tasty and they fill the plate. I ended up at the globe on saturday btw. Got a great meal and pretty cheap. Top marks :up:
