Next we headed to Paddy The Farmers pub on the old Blackrock road. I have been in here for lunch a couple of times in the past as has Jen. I have always enjoyed the food here. We walked in and found the place to be almost empty. I ordered a 7up and a bottle of Coors light. The bar maid was very pleasant. There was confusion over my change which was my fault and i acknowledged it. It is a big pub with plenty seating areas. We sat over near the entrance to the off licence which is attached to the pub. I noticed an old weighing scales and an old weighing scales. I felt that the pub was lacking atmosphere the other night. Of course it was a Thursday night and it wasn’t busy at all. The pub is in close proximity to the South Infirmary and i would say that people coming and going from the hospital provide a good trade.
There is a smoking room available although i didn’t go in. The toilets were in fairly good condition the other night. There is one cubicle available. I am not sure if this pub has live music. It is buzzing at lunchtime with loads of people. I would think that it would be a lot busier on a Friday or Saturday night.
Toilet rating: 7/10
Food rating: 7/10
Overall rating: 6.5/10
Fianl comment: Paddy The Farmers is a very well known pub around Cork. It is just on the outskirts of the city.
