Venue type: Pub, Bar
Open seven days till 5.30am, that's how we like our city pubs to be. The Exford, majorly popular with the late hospitality workers, is about as laid back as a pub can be. Stained glass windows in the middle of Chinatown keep secret the pool table and video jukebox that pull in no end of life all day and night long. It's by all means a reliable place to find entertainment at most hours of the day. Karaoke, for example, which might start at 10pm, might often go until 2am in the morning.
The jukebox here is an institution, with an average waiting time of several hours at least.
There's accommodation available on-site, and the backpackers love a game of pool. Just make sure you sort out all those two shots rules beforehand.
A small note should be made of the Exford's upstairs area, the Wintergarden Room, which has a more loungey feel. Friday nights in particular are popular.
Outdoor Area / Beer Garden
A small outdoor terrace features on the way to the first floor.
The Exford (or for the locals the Ex) is the place to be at the end of the night. Loving the regulars, if you go there more than once you get to know people. Everyone is always friendly and the alcohol helps!
It is a good honest Ozzy pub, bit rough round the edges but is truly the diamond amongst all those over done over hyped bars you find in the city.
And better still takeaways till the wee hours.
