We spent most of our free time in here watching the football and rugby. Prices were reasonable for both food and drink. Friday nights is karaoke and on Saturdays they have a DJ. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend a visit

Visited this place midweek around 2pm. A sign outside attracted me with their reasonable prices. At the bar i ordered my drink only to find the board prices only start after 4pm. Nothing on the board indicated this, plus when i mentioned this after recieving my drink had nothing but dirty looks and an abrupt attitude from the barmaid.

Went there on Christmas Eve 2016 , although a local never been here before , but would consider going again. The portions were generous and food was acceptable for what we required. The service was good ( was not particularly busy) . I've seen some comments on being a bit pricey which is possibly the case but as I've said... More

We came here a couple of years ago and it was lovely, staff were friendly and food was great. But on our last visit we went in late afternoon, ordered drinks and asked if they were still serving food - the lady said yes. So we sat and chose our food (4 meals) i went to the bar and ordered,...

A first visit to the area and to Banx. Met at the bar by miserable bar staff/manageress. No smile and not very forthcoming. They were showing midday football which is the main reason we stayed here. Ordered coffee and then food/nibbly bits. What a huge disappointmemt. An extensive American food menu which is advertised as making a lot of the... More

Went for a bit of lunch with my husband and small children. Menu is really varied and there is something for everyone, however does seem more expensive than other places. Service was fast and food was really good, however there was some sweet strange salad dressing on all of our side salads. This was not explained on the menu and... More

Mojito? Looks like one? No. Tastes like one? No. Explanation following complaint. 'I just followed the instructions'. Yeah, but it tastes rotten, like a vodka and lemonade'. It's 💩. Silence.
