I enjoyed my time here. Bar staff had good knowledge of the beers available on tap and helped me select one I'd like. We ordered a meal and it was top notch. Very enjoyable evening here.

We sat outside & was so relaxing. Staff were very friendly & food was delicious. We had the Lamb shank & the Squid, which were both fantastic. The meat fell off the bone with the lamb shank & would definitely eat here again.

Didn't order any more than a pint and some chips but that was enough to keep us chatting at this great place. Outside seating is comfortable and well-spaced, and the music theme changes as the night progresses, which I thought was a nice touch. Great...More
