The building which houses Pumphouse Brewery was originally home to a fire station and ice skating rink before being radically reconverted and opened up as an independently owned pub in 1996. Since then, the restaurant has gained a reputation as one of the best sports bars in the area and the interior still references its quirky past in the form of memorabilia. Late night eats include chilli verde fries, soft baked pretzels and spicy sweet potato wedges. Make sure to stop by for St Patricks Day, when the restaurant is at its most bustling and lively.
