Love going here when we get the chance, great selection of beers and a good atmosphere, tasty tapas also with a good mix of people. Just off the octagon and not as hectic as other bars in the area

Love coming in for the potato chats with aioli and tomato, good vibes from a busy wee city bar. Bartenders are always chatty, decor is old fashioned and a 'mans bar'

This small pub has a nice selection of draft beers, mostly served from engines in the British style. i.e.: cellar temp. This dramatically changes your pint. It was a pleasure to get great beer and be able to taste it as it was meant to...More
