Surprised that the bar was so quiet as it is a lovely little pub. Was mid afternoon, probably gets busier later. Good choice of beers and a outside courtyard which was very pleasant. Friendly staff, well worth a visit

Tuesday nights = hygge night. Candle light, fire, no music, soft calm atmosphere. Just what we needed after a hectic day. Do yourself a favour. Enjoy a fine Malbec by the fire. Keep it up guys and thank you!
