A colleague was leaving work and he was having some leaving drinks here. Great selection of beers - I had the Guinness which was poured perfectly. We had some garlic bread and fries to nibble on and these were delicious. I’ll be back!

We came here for dinner before heading into city for a show, waitresses were very friendly and helpful, meals were full of flavour but slightly small on scale! Beer was good and they’re in the Entertainment Book so you get a discount with voucher
