Came in here for a quick pint on a hot day before heading home. Nice selection of beers and pleasant bar tender. Some decent tunes were being played as well, decent enough for me to use Spotify to check them out.

Happen to drop in after work. Friendly service with a smile. Good selection of craft ale and other drinks and a good menu to boot. Happen to be an open mic night also on a Wednesday, great family friendly atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Been in here a few times since they got a new head chef and launched a new menu. The bavette steak used to be the only thing going for the old menu, but now I feel spoilt for choice. Amazing to see so many specials...More
