Really enjoyed this place, the cocktails are excellent and the bar service is good. This is the only decent pub in barrow, could not find anywhere else nicer. Rest of the town is a bit disappointing sadly

Love the cocktails in this pub. There is a really good menu of cocktails with a great choice of them and it's a nice place to relax on comfy sofas and enjoy them
