O'Neills in Kingston market place combines excellent live music at the weekend with great food and atmosphere.
It can get incredibly lively at times with the musicians briefed to get the punters boogying. Traditional 80's and 90's classics are usually on the music menu, but don't be surprised to hear some Irish music too.
The food menu has some sumptuously grilled steaks, pies and a really nice fish and chips which I always struggle to resist.
The lighting is poor, so readers like me are prevented from scanning the newspapers, but the remit is more social than cerebral, so I have no right to complain.
At any rate by 10pm, the party has taken off and dancing is a more appropriate activity than surveying 'The Independent'. The music tends to entice the more mature - people in their thirties and forties frequent the venue with persistent regularity.
Parking is problematic so would be customers should check bus times or have spare cash for a taxi.
However, these are minor considerations, as on a Friday and Saturday evening O'Neills is definitely ready to rock!
