The TelegraphId mooch along from haymarket station to the Town Mouse Micro Ale house then a couple of doors down is The Five Swans then as there's not much going on on the main drag id head down to Lady Greys and Bacchus (cant remember which order they are?) before making ones way towards Central. Id go into The Vineyard then walk along to The Split Chimp, then slightly back on yourself to Box Social mirco pub (in one of the arches) then finish off in The Telegraph (the juke box alone makes it worth a visit).
Edit: Looks like my route is the best
Must have been a one off as I go quite a bit and it's still what you described in the first part of your post.Loved that place back in the day, jukebox was one of the best around (tyne bars was a smidge better) - went in a few months back and it was shite, poor beers, no atmosphere - just a bit shit...
The Percy Arms, The Three Bulls, Hotspur, The Junction are all around the Haymarket too.Pacific, Huxters (not called that anymore), Sgt Peppers, The Hancock(????), Crows Nest (???), The Goose , the Labour Club, all the scratty bars round by The Gate, then down to The Forth, The Town Wall, and the bar in the station. Some cans from Sainsburys for the train or metro home.
Mario Kart the next day.
