Stopped in for a pint while in town. I sympathise with pubs so close to a spoons since they can never compete price wise but this place seems to do a lot of live music which is great.

We are a fully refurbished pub during the day we proud of our home made food our char grilled flavor it was one of our specialties and we proud to be one of the few places that still do home made chips (proper)
dishes like the piri-piri chicken ,the skewer,rump steak and some Portuguese specialties are our visitor card for who is a food lover
our waiting times sometimes exceed watch is the general time scale but we knew that what we do is good and fresh.
Come to visit us and enjoy a new journey into a pub food experience.
