Decent mill road area drinking holes

It's been a while since I've been out drinking round these parts. Where's good these days?

Not actually been in the Beaccy for over a month, but a new guy Rob took over about three weeks ago. I hear there aren't plans to change much, which is good.
The Salisbury is a bit chainy, but always seems to have a good atmosphere.
196 is great for cocktails and always busy.
The Petersfield is not cheap but has fantastic food.
Lots of friendly faces at the Dev, and their £3 a pint ale is good.
I do like the Six Bells, good food portions and lovely Guinness. ;-)

The Kingston is still nice, but is often too busy to get a table.

The Dev is still too loud and echoey and impossible to hear other people talk.
The Live and Let Live is almost always empty, so I usually go there. Just right for people hating misanthropes like me. (Don't you all start going there, I will be very cross if I can't get a table).

The Empress is still fucking awful, with a weird landlord who thinks he is it.

I've not been in any other Mill Rd pubs for ages.

Oh I can't stand the dev for the same reason as you Rob. Plus I understand the manager is a dick. Looks like the live Or the beacy then. :)

Are you still around Miss R or have you upped sticks and completely moved to the sticks now?

The Beacky is under new management, a guy called Rob seems a decent enough fellow. still too loud when they have the bands play and the Thursday night crowd are right up their own arseholes. And yes MissR has moved away.

Yeah, I popped into the beacy and it was too loud without a band (but with music playing). I ended up in the live which was just right.
