What’s not to like about this spruced-up pub tucked away just off still-grotty North End Road. The updated, bric-a-brac-y interior sets a delightfully convivial tone, but the venue divides neatly into different areas, allowing you to tailor a party for smaller groups (up to 40 seated or 80 standing) or larger groups (up to 150). Smaller groups are well catered for on long tables. Ask about the various games, the photobooth, live DJs and the late licence. Turkey is not the only dish on offer, though it is taken seriously, as are a range of well-done cocktails.
