Well, I'm going to whinge first. Get it out of the way, sort of thing.

What's with that pool table? It's got neon lights all the way round the cushions. It HURTS to play pool. And it's always busy with young student types desperately attempting to go blind. What?

Aside from that, it's not too bad here, and it's often used as a meeting spot to springboard folks on to the rest of Newtown or to finish up at the end of the night (though it's not so far from the Alfred, which is open later and is more relaxed)

Out the back is a lounge/restaurant - though we haven't tried the food yet. As with the rest of the pub, it's low-lit with occassional gaudy touches - not really our thing at all, but it seems popular. Oh, and there's also a quite large bottle shop attached.

PubGoer from Balmain
The place must have changed a bit since the last people commented, or maybe I have caught it at different times to them. Used to be an old haunt from the Uni days, even met my wife there back in the day (early 90's). Lately I have popped in a few times for a meal and a catch up with some friends - and found the place to be quite acceptable. it is easy to kick back on the lounges near the dining area, have a few quite ales, then go in for a meal. Service is sometimes ordinary, one time with a group of about 12 the meals were all over the place, and out of time - but as i am fairly relaxed about that sort of thing, it was OK by me. Still have to make a friday night visit and see if the pub bands still play, and the beer and drunkeness flows, but i will sav that for another time.

Not the most entertaining. Young crowed, drifters. Meeting place for locals, the best part of the Marls is the MegaBucks Gaming Room, which regulary has lounges and funk music playing. Good place to recover/hop from.

I LIKE MOST OF THE BANDS THAT I HAVE SEEN. YOU TRY TO HAVE TWO-PIECE BANDS, BUT THE FAILED MISERABLY.
