Been here a couple of time over the past months and both times food was excellent. Try the buffalo burger which is chicken with their amazing buffalo sauce. Service and atmosphere also good.

Popped in on a Sunday late afternoon. Great live music and friendly bar staff. Sensible beer prices and good atmosphere. Haven’t tried the food but menu looks tasty. Nice place for drink after shopping.
