Great little bar, situated in the heart of the city. If you're a top gun Dan then pop in for a drink. We are here, reasonably priced and good food. Atmosphere was good and we were made to feel very welcome.

Very friendly place with a corner bar type feeling. Neil Diamond music for a mature crowd. Besides the bar there is patio seating and dining rooms.
