No atmosphere what with the tellys on and all that but the sports and 24 hours news must make the usual barfly hangers on happy.

Too many locals gathered around the bar and very average quality of staff serving, there appeared to be nobody in charge?

OK if you like football on TV all time - could be difficult to get to bar with people seated at it. Seating outside if weather fine, but could be overrun with smokers!!

The bar food was of great quality, but some of the menu options were a "high-brow" also the menu would have soon become boring if I had stayed more nights. Maybe its Me but a few more standard favorites would be good

Used this bar when staying at the attached hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The menu is small but adequately varied to cater for all tastes. The food is tasy and in large portions which can be taken away if too much. Nice atmosphere with the background music/TV not too loud for a conversation but loud enough to... More

I enjoyed the food very much as Bar Zest has gluten free products so I could have a pasta dish. The service is attentive and friendly.
