Actually not that far from the Live and Let Live. Parking is easier as 
there's a car park on Gwydir Street. Gets very busy. Beer excellent, but 
the food at the Live is much better IMHO.

An unassuming pub that has got a reputation for being a computer blokes' 
pub, at lunchtime anyway (Acorn was just round the corner and they had to 
organise a daily rota). I find evenings a bit touch and go. Sometimes it 
can be completely dead, other times packed. The Thai food is great.
