“Good for Indie music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

The Oval is located across the road from the (now closed) Beamish & Crawford brewery; it used to be the tied house for the brewery. Now it's a small, atmospherically lit pub that plays great Indie music.

“Nice pub. Great selection of beers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Lovely pub on South Main Street. Great selection of draught and bottled beers and nice decor. Great atmosphere on Friday and Saturday nights when it gets busy.

The previous reviewer says that it's for 40 somethings but as a 40 something myself the average of the clientele is more like 30 something!

“Good spot for a few beers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

What a great place for the 40 somethings to drink and great indie background music being played. The old style of the bar has remained. The further in you go you will find old armchairs with small tables.good place for a small group.trad nights are held also.great spot for a few drinks.
