Calach / Ian - I just saw that today! I was most upset. What do you want to bet the new management won't like folkies? *sigh* So - my recommendations are then, Lafferty's, Whey Pat, and the Cellar Bar, all of which and particularly Lafferty's I think would be fine in the afternoon, but likely very busy on a Saturday night. If not those, the Tudor is often quiet and quite nice, but has a jukebox and occasional patrons whom I doubt would be appreciative or polite enough not to turn it on. There's another little quiet one on North Street that I'm trying to remember the name of that a friend of mine used to work at - since as far as I can tell there's never anyone there, I doubt anyone would object. When I get a free moment I'll make some enquiries.
