Grimsby is a small town on the end of the M180. It used to be a really big fishing port and where there are sailers there are pubs. These days things are different now, but there are still many places to visit for that relaxing drink, if that is what you are after. There are plenty of pubs to drink at in Grimsby and they all cater for different people. In the town centre there are the 'trendy' pubs, like, Edwards, T.P Woods, with wooden floor, cool music and bottled beers. Plus they are building a new development of pubs and wine bars, next to the shopping centre. That is where Chicargo Rock Cafe is, all my friends go a lot and say it is really good, a bit for everyone, from the young to the older client, I had my leaving do from work there when I went on maternity leave, food lovely, atmosphere good, but the way we were treated terrible. I booked a table for 25 people all having a meal, (bill very expensive) and as soon as we were finished we were kicked off the table, fair enough if others needed it but it was cleared away and not used, bearing in mind I was 8 months pregnant and there was another pregnant lady with us and no where to sit. It says on the menu that tables booked before 9 aren't for the whole night. But the music was good, it ranges from the 50s to the 80s. There is the more traditional pubs that you go to just to have a pint and relax or even watch the football. On the edge of Grimsby there are the family pubs, that have childrens facilities, like The Haven or the Jug and Bottle, they are fantastic places for the family. They offer family entertainment and food in with it. Then in Cleethorpes, there are the 'fun' pubs. Cleethorpes is a coastal town and has many tourists in the summer and they offer everything you need. Brought your family along, there is the Wellow Hotel or The Trawlerman, quiet drink there is Mitchells or fancy a bop with a drink and there is the Baton Rouge and The Dolphine and a new pub called Flairs that
has a 70's theme. Each pub has something depending on what you are looking for, to suit your needs. Plus if you are hungry after there are plenty of take aways from pizza to fish and chips, kebabs to indians.
