Have a great set up indoor and outdoors, service is very good however food is not really up to scratch, not terrible but not worth eating out for (there are better places to go) however is well worth a visit for a drink.

Lovely bar with friendly staff, great evening sun on the courtyard, and happy to have the dogs at our feet. Not tried the food yet but its a great place for a drink, esp with the happy hours and loyalty card!
