Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Flowers of the Forest

Basic community pub with some hanging baskets enlivening the exterior but little in the way of decor once inside the irregularly-shaped interior of the opened-out bar area. Plain wooden furniture inside and a few benches out on the pavement. Also has a bigger-than-expected rear patio beer garden. Several silent TV screens, but music on a decent-sounding system (albeit of the MOR variety). As a notionally Irish pub, there is no real ale but as a small mercy keg Courage Best (£3.50) is an alternative to the inevitable John Smith's Smooth.

I suppose visiting an Irish (or Irish themed) pub on St Patrick's Day weekend is not the best time or place for a quiet pint. It was full of reasonably drunk people (nothing wrong with that) all having a great time, so I didn't see the pub as it really is most of the time. But the one-room pub is fairly ordinary - standard tables and chairs, replacement boarded floor, pool table, a bit of horse racing themed decor - and that's about it.

There is no real ale here - keg Courage Best seemed to be the best bet as far as I'm concerned. This one really isn't worth bothering with if you're an ale lover.

'irish' themed place, if i want to know how many kilometers it is to dublin i'd buy a map. Used to be called the Oxford arms and i rather wish it still was.
