I can't address the food as I didn't have any & quite honestly don't even know if they serve it. Great young staff who are friendly, fun and work hard. Loads of beers & ciders to choose from. Choice of white wines is non existent & the few they do offer are best avoiding. I can't address the choice of red wines. They have a very good size beer garden with roof coverage if it happens to rain! Many of the tables have bench type seating which isn't great if you are elderly, also there isn't any bar service in the garden which really makes getting in out a pain & something I avoided which was good for my purse!They have loads of staff in the bar area so I am not sure why service is not offered in the garden. The inside of the bar has lots of different sitting areas..music is quite loud so not sure how easy conversation would be.
Easy to get to, many a bus stops close to the front door.

This place has some very cool and quirky vibes from the decor to the staff it’s a really fun place to be. There isn’t much choice in regards to food but pizza but a pizza and a pint does go down well!

Really cool place. Great selection of beers and games. They have arcade games too inc. Time Crises and a pool table albeit squeezed into a small space - in fairness they provide a children’s queue to make up for it!

Look out for the smoking area bar (vape friendly) and the various nooks and crannies, really interesting place.

I visit blackbird on a regular basis. The decor is a mash up similar to Cassidy’s and pmac’s in town. Staff are very friendly and with that form a great atmosphere to enjoy a drink solo or with friends. The smoking are is well set up and buzzing with a lively crowd. Can not recommend this pub enough.

very nice pub, i take a beer and it was very good. People very nice inside the pub, the toilet is crazy. The pub is strange.
