Blackthorn _ left this review about Flan O'Briens

A prominent pub built of Bath stone and occupying a large corner plot just opposite the Theatre Royal, it doesn’t have quite as much of an “in your face” Irish theme as you might infer from the name, and as far as I could make out the only items representing the Emerald Isle were a few small flags and some Guinness ice buckets.

Inside it’s all one large, open room with very high ceilings and large windows on two sides giving a light and airy feel. The flooring is dark black boards whilst the paintwork is mostly a pale khaki green with dark brown paint on the timberwork. There are a few old black and white photos on the wall and a small fish tank behind the bar, but other than that there was little of any note. A large projector screen was showing the rugby as well as a plasma screen elsewhere and the volume was somewhat too loud making it difficult to escape from the commentary if you weren’t interested in it.

Beers on tap were Doom Bar and Butcombe, whilst the solitary cider was Thatcher’s Gold. Overall, this isn’t a bad pub, but it’s not especially great either. At least it’s not been gastrocised or otherwise tarted up, but it doesn’t offer much in the way of atmosphere and the beer choice is somewhat uninspiring.
