O'Neill's Irish Bar, Glasgow
With minimal faux Oirish screens and booths due to its small size, and some lurid coloured paint slapped around, this is a funny wee pub, and not really typical of the chain. No harm there, you might say. However, there's something in the seating set-up that makes this a less than comfortable place for a pint and a chat, even if you're happy standing to drink the black stuff. No-one quite knew where to put themselves, including us. The lassie clearing the tables offered us fresh Guinness, but it seems that most people were doing what we did - one quick pint and then off elsewhere. If you get there early, the back bit looked rather more comfy and it does sport sky TV if sport is your bag, though they kept the TV on despite no sport being on when we were in.
