Reasonable enough pub with lots of sensible drink and food options. The place is a little 'local' orientated but we were at least made welcome by the staff. However, not really our type of place in truth. If I'm being honest, not too good, sorry.

Great little bar with a large range of craft beers, ciders, wines and cocktail specials. Serves light delicious meals which are very reasonably priced. Easy laid back venue with quiz nights during the weeks. Service is friendly and efficient.

I wasn't a fan of the burger, especially the bread. However the chips were crispy and their strawberry dackery was to die for! The live music was also a nice touch, and the staff were cheerful.More

Descibed by our hotel owner as a backpacker bar but we found it to be very quiet and the staff helpful. There was live music and we thought the bar was very quirky with murials and all sorts of instruments around as decor. Craft beer...More

We enjoyed our fish and chips dinner and drinks here. Live music by a reggae guy was awesome. Great atmosphere to have a mellow night over drinks. Cocktails are pricey though.More
