Strangely similar to the Royal
in Five Ways. wooden bar downstairs, swish, airy wood-floored areas upstairs and a popular balcony area. Let's say if you like one, you may well like the other. The only difference is that the Town Hall lacks a TAB (which isn't a bad thing, in our view).
We rocked up after an exhausting day's shopping, myself accompanied by Sophie, and Vas - Trent's other half. Let's just say we were all shopped out, and in my case it was less a shopping expedition and more a walking round trying to find the girls expedition! I was recovering from a hangover of Godzilla proportions, and in a bit of a critical mood, but i couldn't find fault with the place.
Downstairs sports a large island bar, carpeted floors, a big screen TV and a LOT of locals, so we head upstairs to the quieter, polished wood bar. We're impressed and even manage to score a seat on the balcony overlooking Darling Street. It's fairly quiet, a few couples sitting around chatting, a couple of diners, some locals who've had enough of the crush downstairs (there's a sporting event on, and it's wedged)
We migrate inwards to the bar when the breeze gets too much and sit at the bar. It's nice, it's quiet, it's soothing my headache nicely. Shame we've got to trek all the way home, really.
