A large friendly town centre bar in a former shopping arcade and butchers. The pub has a toilet for disabled customers.

The name refers to drabbet smocks, which were manufactured locally by the Gurteen company, who still produce menswear in the town today.

We understand that they give 20p a pint off guest beers on presentation of a CAMRA membership card.
