There are many pubs that students go to for their discounted drinks.
Note that the pubs will be very crowded on Friday nights and Saturday nights. During term time, Thursday nights are pub going nights as well. The pubs will usually be almost empty in the summer months when the students have gone home for holidays.
Can you imagine the contribution of the students to the economy?
This was where we ended up on New Years Eve 1999-2000, we was'nt planning on even going up here as my mate had bought tickets for another club and when we got in it was dead so we made a sharp exit and landed in here which was the complete opposite as it was heaving.
We bought a bottle of champagne for £10, £5 each and itblew my head off, thats what made me really drunk that night, blimey it was strong !!
My friend unfortunately was so drunk that she left the club without me and went home, apparently when questioned the next day she did'nt even realise that I was'nt in the taxi with her !! It only dawned on her that I was'nt there when she got up and found my bags and car and house keys still there abd could'nt understand why I was'nt !!
Cutting a long story short, I ended up staying at my nextdoor neighbours !
