Very friendly and welcoming staff. Good range of drinks on offer and food was very tasty. Located in the centre of the city this was perfect for a late lunch and drinks. Clean and good atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

I went with a group of friends and managed to find a table on a busy Friday night. No idea of the prices as we had a kitty but the drinks were acceptable and spirits were served in nice cut glass tumblers.

I'm not sure as not a 'regular' Jill. They do have a big screen which I believe is mostly tuned to sports so it's a possibility. May be best to give them a call.
