The Hill – Cosy Ranelagh pub

For me, The Hill was love at second sight. The very first time I walked in, I thought it was such a typical “old man’s pub”, and I didn’t like the way it smelled (oh boy) so I just walked out. Thankfully, I did decide to give it another chance, and I’m quite a frequent customer since.

Having said “customer”, it feels more like you’re a guest in this pub. It’s so cosy, it looks like your neighbour’s living room, and that’s what it feels like too; mostly frequented by people living nearby, it has the charm and the vibe of a true local pub. The bartenders are really friendly too, and I bet they know all the visitors by name. 

The beer selection is standard for an old-fashioned pub, and so is the traditional pub food. Special compliments to the chicken wings! Also the portions are enormous, so it’s a good enough place to have food and drinks before hitting the town on a night out.

The one thing I found The Hill didn’t have was single malt whisky (well, just had to head down the road to the Taphouse!).
