Rather in the manner of a D-list 'celeb' seeking attention, this pub undergoes regular makeovers; usually to the utter indifference of the wider world. One has to ask what the point of it is in the case of The Alliance. It is, and has always been, a perfectly reasonable neighbourhood boozer for people. The latest changes - to a clean, airy (sanitised?) modern look - are presumably designed to appeal to the more upmarket residents of this neighbourhood - a demographic which is not famed for its love of pubs. Apparently an experiment with a separate dining area failed, presumably due to lack of interest. The end result is that you get the same people - there's still a strong working class and Irish element here - coming to a place which is trying, and failing, to attract someone else. It's not a bad place to drop in for a drink - the Guinness is pretty good, and we liked the black and white photos by local photographers - but we do wish they'd just leave the place alone.
