This was a favorite hang-out for the Beatles and many other rock bands, which also served as a safe haven from their screaming teenage fans.

A good laugh with the karaoke providing the entertainment, unfortunately there was a poor selection of draft lager just the Fosters on tap. Reasonably priced and one of the few pubs I'd bother with in Mathew St.

We walked in and walked back out again. The pub is tiny and whilst full of character is not worth bursting your ear drum! There are tons of lovely pubs around, just not this one
