A typical budget pub. Good selection of drinks and food. Great meeting place next to the train station and bus station. Good for lunch

'No children beyond this point' said the sign, did the staff re-inforce it? of course not, a woman with a buggy walked straight through and stole a place at the bar insisting she was served first because of the sprog and got her way. She then took the table next to us so we moved and sat outside on the... More

As above. Poor service from bar staff. One became far more polite after some time of me actually treating them like a decent human being throughout the entire exchange, however staff training is in dire need RE how to treat customers in a polite and appropriate manner. Also, the "rule" of which station food is ordered from should not swing... More

Went to Aber with my boyfriend and his parents to go and visit the uni and so came here three times, twice for meals and once for drinks. It was very busy and so clearly incredibly popular, however both times we found a table as people could see us waiting and so left. The service was incredibly quick and two... More

The staff are very friendly and will always ensure you are happy with your food. The atmosphere is relaxed. It has a nice buzz without being too loud that it's hard to cary conversation. 10/10 would recommend.

There have been many recent problems with this pub. On our last visit, there was no beer on draught! As this is an offer which is part of the meal deal, it causes a slight dilemma. On top of this, they have regularly run out of many of the food options, most notably the day they ran out of chips... More
