My friend and I popped in after a meal. Free entry, great atmosphere with live bands, lots of seating inside and outside, food and great bar. All ingredients for a night out.

Great bar for quiet drinks throughout the week and for a boogie at the weekend. The food is lovely and the staff are friendly too.
