His son had a beard and a Canadian accent, and was a rather obnoxious character, as was his father. The wee lady we nicknamed Molly Weir also worked there at the time and was also there up until it shutdown a few weeks ago. Dont know if she still works there now as i havent seen her since it re-opened.

Where else in the City Centre could you get pie chips beans and a pint for £3.05!!!!
You get a 3-course meal in the Star Bar for 99p.
Is it not £2 now. The horseshoe bar lunch is a good one too.
