The Glimmer Man is a great Irish pub. It's perfect for drinks with friends, watching a big match, or a date night with the other half. Very friendly service and reasonable priced drink in a good location.

What a fascinating pub. Once inside it's like an Aladdin's cave of memorabilia and random artefacts! You could spend hours walking around the pub just looking at what is on show! They also have a cracking stove fire, great music (duke box available), darts and...More
