The location is brilliant as it is an old castle. For a beer the place is fine as it is cheap and they have an outside seating area. The tables were sticky and dirty and the bar staff didn’t seem to care. The food was...More

Not a pleasant experience the sort of place you wipe your feet on the way out, I think it caters for youngsters wanting to get drunk!

Very good Goth themed bar, lots of creepy pictures on the wall. Good choice of cocktails some in skull glasses. We chose the pick and mix plank, dirty chips, chicken wings and nachos, plenty food and reasonably priced. Service was slow but staff very friendly.
