This is the nearest branch of Oddbins to my house (although the Newington Road and West End branches are both handier by bus if I'm getting a case or two). If you're in this Oddbins and they only have one bottle of Plymouth Gin left, please don't buy it. It's mine. I really like Oddbins for wine. They've also got a good line in Italian lager: Moretti in bulk, often at a very plausible discount. What they don't seem to have figured out is Czechoslosh. Yeah, they've got Budvar like everyone else, and maybe Staropramen or Pilsner Urquell, but give me Eisbrau or Nova Czech, and don't charge me more than a quid for half a litre if I'm buying twenty.
You can see how to get up and down the Walk from here, also up Brunswick Street to the left of Oddbins. I'll have a picture of McDonald Road real soon now.
