To all the pubs we’ve loved before – Three Goats Heads

Week 7 – for the normal student, we are approaching the end of term, for the less normal; it is hack week on St Michael’s Street! For our last review therefore, we headed to the Three Goats Heads (conveniently right beside the Union). We visited here for Sunday lunch and found the pub to have a welcoming, vintage feel. The staff were really sweet and the food arrived incredibly quickly. In short – it was fantastic! The macaroni and cheese was delicious and the nachos were huge and had an exceptional amount of cheese (looking at you, Turf!). The chunky chips also deserve a shout out – they were the best we have had. For drinks, they had an extensive range of beer on tap, we of course had to try their bitters. Samuel Smith bitters was delicious with a buttery note, they even rivalled our favourite bitters at the Lamb and Flag! Our friend had the Alpine lager, claiming that it tasted like Staropranen (a popular Slovak beer – we will take her word for it). An impressive feature of this pub is their cocktail selection – quite rare to see in a pub but this place had it all, ranging from fruity classics to some more sophisticated flavours. Our friend had the Rob Roy and claimed it was the best cocktail he had tasted in a while! Overall, this pub is very quaint, has a great vibe and delicious food, and is particularly good if you don’t want to break the bank!
