A friend suggested we go here for a bite to eat and a cocktail or two. I'd never been and I was looking forward to it. Well, I never expected the place to look so dark, dingy, dirty and drab! Actually never mind looking dirty...it...More

For basic pub lunch this was fine. Plenty of table space, friendly staff and quickly served food. Big burgers and big portion sizes. No complaints from me
