Blackthorn _ left this review about Scallys

A good sized and popular biker’s pub located just opposite Dolphin Square. The interior décor is basic and a little dated with predominantly cream paint, red detailing and rough wooden flooring. There are murals of various bikes below the bar, and further drawings up above.

It’s one big open L-shape inside with a raised area at one end used for various band nights, a pool table and a couple of other smaller, raised areas offering some comfier seating. The music policy seems to be predominantly metal – there were various flyers on the wall detailing upcoming bands from this genre, and that was also predominantly the music that was playing in the background. Most of the punters, and the landlord, looked to be of the biker / metal variety. One particularly rotund, and folicly challenged gentleman sported a t-shirt with the slogan Machine F******* Head emblazoned all over it (my asterisks, not his!).

The solitary cask ale on offer was Directors, although there was also Courage Best on keg. There were several ciders though, namely Strongbow, Blackthorn, Thatcher’s Gold and Thatcher’s Dry. Overall, I quite like this pub and may try and get down for some of their gigs – an up and coming “Napalm Death Metal” night sounds appealing! But it’s obviously not going to suit everyone, and the lack of beer choice is a little disappointing.

Wicked pub with a mixed bag of bands regularly playing blues, rock, punk, Ska, metal...you name it, they get the bands in! The Directors is always a lovely pint and kept well. The landlady would be mortified to read herself described as a metaller! Weston bike night is held almost every Thursday in the summer months and there's usually a band on and great homecooked food available. Locals are a friendly bunch, despite some appearances (mostly me!) and you can relax or dance the night away, whichever you prefer. The juke box has every type of music on you could ever imagine and the pool table is often free during the week. I rarely use any other pub in Somerset. Bike parking right outside the pub, and a carpark too, on Carlton Street which is open as usual, despite town centre renovations. Pop by, you'll be pleasantly surprised! Missy Jones.
