Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
it brings in the student-y riff raff from the surrounding towns and cities on Fridays and Saturdays

There is generally an inverse relationship between quality seeking real-ale wise and troublemaking. If you go to pubs that serve excellent real ales, then you'll find yourself surrounded by affable people.

Trouble makers go for lager lager lager lager, they're a different clientele and don't inhabit the same drinking space. You just have to recognise the (easily-read) cultural signposts eg a huge chalkboard advertising Sky Sports = lager bar. Don't go near.

It's probably no different from london. I don't drink in the centre of town on friday nights, but there'd still be a couple of pubs that are okay just outside of the Circle line worth doing even then. And the further out you go, the greater the likelihood.

keep to the Fen Causeway
