Alex Conway left this review about Causeway

Now known as Finnbars, has had alight refurbishment but everything is just the same as before just a little smarter but not going to win any interior design awards. Everything is now painted white and there is a lot of cheap wood and paneling everywhere giving this a very bright and uncomfortable feel. Fortunately they have came to their senses and only opened until 12 on weekends to stop the undesirables coming from the dump down the road and causing problems that saw this place close down originally. they now have three pumps on the bar that on my visit were serving Duchars ipa (£2.90) courage best and a reversed clip of their own house ale brewed by theakstons, the Deuchars was actually in alright nick so this place gets a point for that. Not my sort of place, just one of the many very average bars in Sherwood but probably not one I would hurry back to, the ale does make it passable if you do evidently end up here.

Alan Winfield left this review about The Causeway

Dowlings Irish bar is the latest name for this small single room bar,it first started out as the Punch and Judy only keg beers then it was called the Causeway.
Once inside there is an oblong shaped room with the bar to the right,the room is bare boarded,there is a strange small raised area to the front which is where i sat,it feels like you are on a small stage looking over the rest of the room,there was bench seating on the raised area,the rear area had a bay seating area and tall tables and chairs.
There were lots of irish slogans on the walls along with celtic tops and scarfs.
No real ales here just John Smiths smooth crap which it was.
This is not a posy place but a bar that wants to cater to genuine irish people,who were in here on my Tuesday afternoon visit.
