Great spot for a drink and some local flavor. Many nights have great, local bands playing. Local spot full of fun and drink. Can get crowded on some nights but worth a stop in.

Tonight I experienced one of the best meals of my life! I can't get over the quality of the food and service it was amazing. I have notice to staff that a group of us ( who are vegans) wanted to book a table. The head chef went above and beyond! I'm still in shock! He prepared a feast for... More

Food was good but the service was very poor. Despite it being very busy the staff were happy to stand around talking to locals rather than provide service. Two extra drinks were never delivered to the table. Wouldn't return as it seems a place where being "in the know" gets you service.

We arrived around 2pm on a Tuesday and thankfully they were serving food. It is not an extensive menu but enough choice for us. He had 8oz steak sandwich and chunky chips. I had crispy garlic chicken with creamy garlic potatoes. Kiss me later!! He also had vegetable soup, thinking it was vegetable broth so on that count was disappointed.... More

On a recent visit we found the food excellent and service superb. We had an evening special which was an 8oz sirloin with tomato and french fried onions, salad and choice of side order. We each chose the chips which were lovely and crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. The steaks were cooked as requested and were juicy and... More

Good,friendly and fast service. Atmosphere was excellent and some live music. Food was well presented and good sized portions. Wine list was adequate but concentrated on third world and less expensive wines.

Visited here on a Saturday evening with a group of friends. It was very lively with a good family atmosphere. The service from the start was very poor. Left to stand around and then a long time before drinks orders were taken. We actually thought they had forgotten about us and asked to be served. The food was excellent. I... More

Really friendly bar with really great food. We were all very hungry after a day on our mountain bikes and they fed us really well. Great value for money and great quality food. Couldn't beat it.
