Having rejected Park Lane's offer of £3 each to get in we went to the Apple and Parrot. It is a traditional pub with reasonably priced drinks but a live band was playing who were really quite good which made it a lot of fun. Would certainly return.

After visiting a few bars before here this pub was actually a relief. Just a regular everyday boozer. Drinks reasonable price. Good selection of bars snacks. Football was shown which for us was great. Bar staff here go above and beyond to please. Would definitely visit again.

My Mrs and our daughter and her friend visited this bar on Friday and Saturday over the Easter weekend. On both occasions we were not served as there was a lack of bar staff.
