Found downstairs at the Broadway Fair Shopping Centre, this space has long been a favourite drinking hole amongst university students, but its current incarnation as American college themed Varsity Bar manages to pull a broad crowd with their burgers and beers. There are sports on the telly all year round as well as ping pong, pool and pub games.
But it’s Varsity’s burgers that keep you coming back time after time. Crispy chips accompany a toasted brioche bun filled with all manner of delights. The McFly is a real winner (a double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeños, onion rings and smokey habanero sauce) and the Buffalo Chicken (buttermilk fried chicken breast, buffalo sauce, cheese, lettuce, tomato, celery and ranch sauce) is a popular pick. Do you dare try your hand at the Presley, a double cheeseburger with bacon, crunchy peanut butter and banana? Claire
