The Rhoderick Dhu: scoring every time

With its high ceiling, wood-panelled walls and horseshoe-shaped bar that juts into the room, The Rhoderick Dhu is a lively city-centre bar that takes its sport seriously. Switching from horseracing to football - or whatever big tournament is on - it hits the back of the net with a wide age range thanks to the three Sky boxes and multiple screens. It has its own built-in smoking courtyard to the rear - complete with plasma TV, heaters and fairy lights - and it also has a sizeable downstairs function room, known as the Ruag, ideal for business meetings, 21st birthday parties and retirement dos: call for details. Children over the age of five are welcome until mid-afternoon.
