This is a very good bar with first class staff. The building is full of character and the three levels give you plenty of choices. They have a great selection of wines and beer while the food is pretty good as well.

I loved the place because they have nice decoration and kept the historical details from the building too. The beer was perfect and chips as well.

Hi, I remembered seeing a few small screens around and a medium sized screen. Not sure about the large sized ones, sorry about it as we were only there for social dinner night out not watching the games. E-T
