There's a segment of the pubguide team which is quite fond of Billy's. There's another which can't stand it. This is probably the reason we don't get to go there as much as we used to. Jason, along with extended team members Trent and Viv, is one of the ones that like it. Josh and Sophie don't.
Our favourite haunt is upstairs, round the pool tables or seated at the bar, but don't sit at the end of the bar nearest the pool tables. We're not sure if it's been fixed or not, but for about six months there was a section of the bar edging which could deliver you a nifty little electric shock. not enough to really
hurt, but certainly enough to make you spill your beer!
The pub is a very late opener, which is usually why we're there - having been turfed out of other local haunts at closing time.
It's a known haunt of backpackers, and of slightly crazy locals, but it's usually fun. But grotty. definitely grotty.
