Hadnt realised that this place had opened again. I had a couple of pints and a very enjoyable hour or so. Will definitely be back. Looks great inside and no sign of the gorillas that used to inhabit the place 10/10

New people seem friendly and approachable , beer wasnt too bad either - the real question is can they keep the scum out and make this into a decent respectable little local ?? Well the place seems a little too small and characterless to have any potential for me .

Fair play to them for trying but i have my doubts about this place long term.

I visited the Illicit Still last night and found it busy, lively and it had a great atmosphere.

A good selection of beers ere on offer and has and have fosters at 2.20 and selected doubles at 3.00

A great addition to an area of the city that is crying out for decent local.

This Pub re opened this weekend so I though I would pop in and see if it had changed any. The layout is roughly the same as it had been before but it has been substantially refurbished. New wall seating and lighting and I noticed that a booth had been created up at the back.

This has the signs of being a cracking little boozer. The staff were very helpful, attentive and well mannered. I had a pint of the 80' Shilling and it was simply divine.

Ten out of ten.

The Illicit Sill will be opening soon. It will have no connections with the previous manager/owner. All that will stay the same is the name.
This will be a good, traditional type pub, offering light bites, good ales and beers and excellent customer service.

Please come in, enjoy the atmosphere and craic and I am sure you will become a regular in a very short time.

The illicit still will shortly be under new management. We are hoping to provide competitively priced drinks and a relaxed atmosphere. Ignore all previous reviews and give us a chance!!

This is a rubbish bar. It is small and has nothing decent on draft. The Pub Quiz on Thursday night is totally rubbish. To many students not enough real people.

This used to be a really great place to sit in for a few hours. It was done on the cheap when it was taken over, it's sparsely decorated & the seats aren't nearly as comfy but if you stick around long enough to get to know the main staff members you'll have a few good nights. The pub quiz is becoming popular so get there early for a seat. The food is basic rolls/toasties & pizza but you won't get any cheaper and it's decent. Good drink selection, good value.

I liked the place, nice staff, nice selection of bear, spirits, etc and friendly atmosphere. Pub quiz on a Thursday night is great fun. Food is great value and though a simple menu, is still very nice.

A real salt of the earth pub. OK for a one off pint, but there are far better pubs near by (Cloisters).
