Really enjoyed visiting this quirky bar! The food was top notch! Staff were friendly. Music was awesome! Would definately go back!! My only criticism is the toilets could do with a freshen up.

We came here in Friday to ostensibly to the live music and loved it so much we returned on the Saturday. Live music, great food, great service and great prices, what more could you ask for. 😀
