A lovely bar with a great atmosphere and good service. The music playing was great and there was room to sit. Was reasonably priced and was in a great location in the town.

We are coming to Bolan for over 8 years. Friendly bar with nice music (mostly reggae), cold beer and good cocktails. The owner and his kids are super friendly and always a good laugh.

Such a fun atmosphere, the staff are chatty and polite, great music and the cocktails (especially the mojitos) are first class. Oh and make sure you write your name on the wall outside. Highly recommend!
