This pub is a hidden gem. Hidden downstairs, first are the dart boards and the pool tables. To the left is the ring-shaped bar, the popcorn machine, the TVs playing sports, and for some, the main attraction: big, comfy, leather couches and seats clustered around two TVs with a selection of NES, SNES and N64 systems. For any nostalgic gamer, it’s heaven: GoldenEye, Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 64 and so much more for all of the systems. Shelves of cartridges. Be prepared to spend way too many lives there.
