Great English style pub with good food and very friendly staff. I work here for a month at a time and find myself coming here over and over. Rock and roll music and everyone speaks English. Jim

Great choice of both drinks and food, unfortunately the quality of the food doesn't reflect the prices & drinks are at the pricey end of the scale also. However it's a great atmosphere & perfect for people watching whilst enjoying a drink.
