Very noisy. Almost impossible to have a conversation. Greeted by a greasy menu that had not been cleaned in some time and general lack of cleanliness. The lamb shank was served with vegetables and barley that had been cut in a food processor and were...More

Loved the burger and fish & chips! Will be back for live music soon. Love the atmosphere. OK for kids during the day but probably not after dark.
