Has some very good live bands if you like rock genres; smelly place though ( urine/smoke/crowded). Good venue for Hot August Jazz Festival though when it attracts different patronage. Open air bar out the back can be good on a hot night for a big...More

We regularly visited the pub once for dinner and at other times for a drink after dinner. Great service and a good way to meet the locals.
