A really great place to do everything from grab a quick drink to have a full on lunch and dinner. Atmosphere is great, food is affordable and the beers are cold. What more could you want?

We have moved on from Ella so I don't know what they are planning in terms of music but I would say that this is a great place in Ella to celebrate New Years.
