Fantastic friendly staff and always good food. Finger foods to full meals. Great for groups or just a quick drink, either alcohol or not. Pub atmosphere, sports on tv, lotto, or just sit and talk.

Been going there since before I was allowed and its always a fun time. Good straight forward menu, need bigger t.v.'s but all bars need that. Good staff and great location.

We ordered the hamburgers, which were tasty, but just typical hamburgers. They were on special with a great price. Our friend ordered the 1/2 price chicken wings. You could order any amount you wanted, and he ordered 15. He was only able to eat eight...More

Found nothing special here - good variety on the menu - portions were large and flavorful. Found the steak sandwich had a large piece of meat but considerable grizzle making it not a great choice. As pubs go we do not normally eat at them...More
