I had the mushrooms with houloumi cheese. The mushrooms were very tasty with lovely herbs. We also had a plate of cheesy jalepenos were not too over the top hot. Good value for money.

Out for a walk, sunny day, stopped in to see what's on tap. Had a nice bitter IPA relaxed in the garden bar, perfect. Have to return in the evening they have gigs almost every night

Heard there was live jazz happening on a Thursday night. Unfortunately there weren't many to enjoy a great trio but I did. Good selection of local beer & wine, only down side was the small selection of food available.

A few drinks after work. Such a nice place hidden away in the centre of the city to relax in all different areas inside and outside. Live music food and great service. Only downside is drinks are a bit pricey but would go again
