We were served promptly by a lovely and very attractive Irish girl. Three pints of Guinness came to only£9.75! £9.75 for the... More

good entertainment with karaoke, well run and organised, always busy ...few bad points .....food isnt anywhere as good as it used to be , also there is a new toilet attendant who is quite intimidating for money when you use the upstairs toilet, also they dont stock bullmers/magners flavoured or pear ciders or crabbies alcoholic ginger beer

Hi Jacqueline, Thanks for taking the time to review us and leave your kind comments. As for the toilet attendant - we did have some in on the key nights during December when we were going to be busiest. We felt like they helped keep the place neat and tidy - if you were uncomfortable at all we hope that... More

I said to the barman I had asked for sparkling water only to be told I hadn't. He grudgingly brought me the sparkling water... More

Went with work colleagues following a meal out, for an evening entertainment. A really good fun night, some good singers and some not so good. Everyone joins in and offers encouragement to all, great to sing along to everything. A very good evening out with lots of drinking and singing. Would definitely go back when visiting again.
