The service was EXTREMELY slow. It was also very crowded and the place was hopping. The entertainment was very good. We only stayed for one beer because it would've taken too long to get a second. All the girls dress up very fancy and we...More

Great food - buzzing atmospherics - probably need to book (we ate in a Friday night and it was busy) - amazing burgers and very casual. Really recommend.

Good prices, great decor and the staff are always friendly. The live music at the weekend is the best. I also love to go when it is less busy during the week. The vibe is very cool but not full of teens!

My wife and i visited this bar in December and thoroughly enjoyed our night. The atmosphere was amazing and it certainly helped the drinks flow. Reasonably priced drinks, great entertainment and well heated beer garden. Cant wait to go again.
