"The Pure Drop..."

...and well conducted, at that. This local is proof positive a good public house is a good publican: the personalities of the man and woman of the house have shaped and make possible every good thing about this place...and it is VERY good indeed. Small and welcoming, it pulls off a well-nigh impossible trick, being equally patronized as a home-away-from-home for local regulars and an ever-changing assortment of blow-ins from wherever (one of whom is the writer of this review, who — though a Yank — was made to feel right at home the first time he showed his face; was made to feel a regular the very next night; and — on returning the next year — might have been mistaken (by one of the new blow-ins) for a returning emigrant if the welcome given was the only evidence. The sessions of music on offer here are just that: not gigs pretending to be sessions, and all are truly welcome to join in, if they have the music in them. Youll find the older, shteady gait here, particularly if Frank Custy and his mates are the Boys in the Gap. Dont miss it!

This is a genuine Irish pub, well worth a visit if you are in that area, the landlady Joan is a treasure and looked after us very well.
