Been coming in this place for over 20 years and love this place but the staff need a bit of training as to who to serve first when there's a rush.... If you 5 foot nothing you can get totally overlooked🙁

Regular visit with a friend. Cheap drinks and nice atmosphere! The garden area is always changing around. Want them moon chairs back. Maybe with a few more heaters. Always quite busy but staff manage well.
