Lets do booze now the curry has settled.
Best real ale pubs, near the stations on Wallgate, Berkley which has multiple TV screens and a huge projected screen so for those arriving intime to watch Australia get smashed by the USA you can get a good pint, eats and watch the game.
Just up the road you have the Raven, good selection of real ale two TV screens but usually little or no volume, grub wise traditional simple pub fayre.
The Anvil, Hallgate behind the Parish Church next to bus station. Renowned pub with its own brewery across the road next to the church. Always good for beer, two TVs always with sound. Tradiional boozer, food = crisps and nuts.
Worth a visit is the John Bull, no TV so if you want to watch the game time it right to be elsewhere, several real ales and well known for its juke box. If your lucky and they haven't sold out you may get one of their specialist pies.
New kid on the block, Docherty's (formally The Charles Dickens) only opened last weekend, good selection of real ales in a modern setting.
Weatherspoons, Moon Under the Water, must be the worst of their outlets in the whole country, it really is dire.
