Cheap drinks and a pleasant atmosphere when I visited with the wife. Large area with plenty of seating. Will have to return for food as the menu for bar meals looks ok.

Decent Wetherspoons pub with very nice interior. Bar staff served me quickly and my food was on the table in 10 minutes. Handy position for local shops and metro.
