A super pub right by the festival theatre. Mine Host Patrick is very hospitable and knowledgable. He has a great range of malts, gins and rums to sample. The rolls and sandwiches looked top notch , and the clientele was a mix of locals and tourists. There is also a tiny cinema where punters vote for their choice of movie from a long list. A well behaved but fun Stag party filled the cinema ! Definitely a great pub,with a great future!

Having been to a show at The Festival Theatre I asked the cloakroom attendent for a pub in the area and was pointed in the direction of The Brass Monkey.... great wee pub with tonnes of atmosphere, great range of music too! We had planned to go on a pub crawl but having arrived here at 5 we were still here at 11!! £3.30 for a Guinness which is pretty good....we ate couple of rolls which were fresh and lovely....great staff too and the barmen very kindly gave us some "mini Marys"....
Great place....promise you will be there longer than you planned to;-)
