Great atmosphere the night we were there with friends. Friendly, quite busy, and great food. The choice is fairly good, and the service fast and efficient. A fun night with a happy crowd on a warm summers night !!

This is our local and the people who work here are the friendliest most polite crew out there. Great range of beers on tap, especially with a bowl of triple cooked fat chips. Don't hesitate to pop in you will enjoy it
