Just plain greasy. Rude staff. Long wait for drinks (but no, you can't order two!). I think they think they are the stuff in GP because it's crowded, but that's because it's so dang small (not their fault, just fact). If the band would tone it down (a lot read: half volume), they would get a better deep fryer, and lose the attitude, it would be more fun. Fish and chips is good, but beware - all that grease will cause a mail call later at the worst time. Beautiful old bar, worth seeing. My rec: go for lunch or early dinner before the crowd gets there and the staff get overwhelmed.
