Went in here on a recommendation from someone who was clearly joking. Very cheap drinks but insane people who were clearly on drugs. We escaped after 1 drink.

Expecting a sportsbar by US definition, the establishment is more of a pub where sports is shown. Staff were very accomodating to putting on the relevant game at the time, I feel that the place deserves more clientele. Maybe we were there in off-peak.

I love a good beer and although I have been in nicer venues it has an old pub feel and the staff were very friendly! What it did have was a great pint of lager for £2. I will be back!!

This is a small friendly bar in the heart of Rhyl. Pints from £2 and large screens showing sky sporting events live! Really friendly staff If your in Rhyl it's a must!
