Rare do I post a bad review. In fact, I'll only do this if the whole party agree, and boy, does this meet the criteria. Started off with the good lady enjoying drinks with her friend and decided to turn it into a night. So...More

I took my family here for a few quite drinks last night and we were not dissapointed it's not as busy as the main street and very relaxing atmosphere .We couldn't fault it if you want loud and boisterous this is not for you.

Went for a few drinks with my girlfriends on a hen do - one bartender: Kally, was absolutely fantastic. Best service I've received in a while. She helped us decide on drinks and was quick and friendly. Would definitely go back!
