RECENT PUB CRAWL; PART TWO

PUB CRAWL PART 2; THE FRISCO; THE TILBURY AND THE BELLS HOTEL

Having left the Old Fiztroy we went down the street to the next pub. The Frisco Hotel, There where no craft beers on here so we made do with a middy of Cascade Bright Ale and a Toohey’s Old. I wasn’t particularly impressed with this pub as I didn’t think it had any character and the staff didn’t seem particularly engaged. I wouldn’t be surprised if this pub had a lot of history but there didn’t appear to be any interest in cashing in on it. so we left and made our way to the Tilbury Hotel which must have been all of two hundred metres away.
At the Tilbury we had a middy of James Squire Four Wives Pilsner, Little Creatures Bright Ale, Stone and  Wood Pacific Ale, and a Kosciusko Pale Ale and also had a bit of a snack on a ( chicken) wrap. Inside this pub there is nothing left of its old character, it seems to have been completely renovated to be a bar restaurant and probably far more interested in cocktails and wines. There appeared to be plenty of room for dining and it certainly looked as though it was popular and doing a fair bit of lunch time trade but it didn’t look like my idea of a “local”

From there we went to the Bells Hotel and had a couple of Toohey’s Old’s as there was no craft beers on here and I didn’t really expect there to be. This pub is more of a “local” then the Previous two, and seemed to have retained some of its earlier character and I would bet that it had plenty of stories to tell.

I have borrowed a couple of pictures from the web
