Butty Boat Bar, Mount Street

Midland Hotel, Peter Street. (c) earthinpictures.

This was the public bar of the Midland Hotel, entered either from within the hotel or by an outside entrance on Mount Street.  A loose canal connection was seen in the decor, with a few painted posts and teapots amongst the lounge style seats.  The 1975 guide mentions poor service and pricey beer with a bad selection of national keg brands, Worthington, Double Diamond, Youngers Tartan and Carling [1].  Its clientèle tended to be businessmen on expenses and couples.
