Friday appeared to be the coming of summer time as the temperature zipped over 30 (in fact three days later that each one appears unlikely with the rain pouring down as I write) however after a longish stroll up and down William Street my parched throat guided me into the Bird for a replenishing beer.
One of the many small bars in and round the Cultural Centre/William Street, the Bird has a singular fashion – shabby stylish maybe – mismatched furnishings and the like, a natty courtyard out again and a stage for performances – the Bird is at coronary heart a reside music venue and it’s in the evenings that issues actually enliven right here. Early afternoon is extra laid again and relaxed.
They have a really small wine listing – perhaps 10 wines however some nice drops amongst them – and with each on faucet and packaged a very good vary of beers and cider are available. Feral Hop Hog appeared to be calling and a jar of that went down properly, and shortly.
The Bird has a brand new meals menu – together with small snacks similar to olives, smoked almonds and bigger meals – wings, Bao, burgers, nachos, fries and pizza, with churros for these candy of tooth. We didn’t attempt something this time, however all of them sound strong bar meals and straightforward to deal with in a crowded viewers.
The Bird is as ever an excellent little spot for a fast drink when round the space – enjoyable, pleasant bar employees add to its attraction. A deservedly common little bar.
