Nice little pub near the station, birthplace of Dark Star Brewery, and still serving their wares. Was a little sad that the Hophead was off the night I visited.

Recommended by a local and well worth the walk. Outstanding beer selection and mercifully Fosters and Guiness-free. Bar staff helpful and interested in beer. Lager-drinking partner rated the Boho highly.
