Only proper pub left in city centre. Great range of beer (and prices!). Friendly folk, with some real 'characters' and a top notch landlord.

Sadly in line with many other towns and cities, the number of traditional pubs in the city centre is reducing and being replaced with pubs catering to youngsters wanting loins music and theme pubs.

In line with San Smith's policy of traditional pubs, the Murenger - never the Olde Murenger House to locals - bucks this trend and is a lively friendly pub with no music. Definitely worth a visit with a wide range of bottled beers and lagers but sadly only one real ale.

I like the character of this old pub with it's little recesses and old world charm but best of all it always serves top quality ale.

A clean, well run pub. The beer is always good. This place is a haven from the rancid detritus that surrounds it, the place where you're least likely to get into a fight with roidhead with tribal tattoos in the centre of town.
