A lovely pub but utterly ridiculous to blast music so loudly afternoon/early evening when people are in to chat. Save the boom boom for later. What’s disappointing is how often the bar staff have heard this point and yet apparently the manager won’t listen. Come on man, turn it down before 8pm!

Yet again a blinding night in Oneills, we done the usual meet up with friends. Bit of live music then a dj after, great atmosphere, bar staff blinding, what a night.

went in for drinks about 8pm yesterday and you could feel the buzzing atmosphere as soon as you walk in. being a Friday night there was music but it was nice to see the rugby on. The staff were really attentive and friendly and seemed like they genuinely wanted to be there which is refreshing. good drink selection. overall a great experience, definitely going to start coming here more often

Okay, so I’ve been here before with just myself, friends and as date location.

I have no problem with the location, the drinks, the prices nor the door staff.

If I’d been asked to write this review a week ago, I would give it 5 starts. However...

I went out for a cigarette on a Friday night with some companions. Upon returning to my table, I saw bar staff nicking the drinks on my table trying to drink them behind the bar. Acting appalled they pretended it was an accident.

I don’t trust any staff member here. I suggest you don’t either.
