After reading reviews for Friends we had to go, was it worth it? Well we went back twice up that bloody hill and met some lovely people, Canadians, Scottish and Scousers. Lisa’s personality infects her bar making it a feel good place to be.

Friends bar is a relaxed, happy and busy little bar. Lisa is a fantastic host. She’s chatty, friendly and ‘on it’. Love the ‘craic’ at Friends Bar.
