I was recently here for a work night out. There was a small area out the back reserved for us so we had our own space. Most people ordered pizza and were very happy with their food... Also big fans of the Sweet Potato Fries. The staff were very helpful and made me non-alcoholic Daiquiris as I was driving, The... More

Dropped in for a few drinks with friends on a Saturday night. Place was busy enough with huge screens showing sports. Waited ages to be served by surly barman. The toiletd were filthy and the bar wasn't much better. Definately wouldn't eat there.
