The staff were great and very friendly, cocktails were nice and pop corn chicken but the burgers were average they had a burn taste to them.

A nice place to stop and have a pint of Guinness and a gin cocktail. Located just off the back of a Main Street, this bar had great welcoming staff and nice decor. Sadly we didn’t have time to eat there but the food looked great. I’d recommend stopping by for a few beers.

Find Bad Habits in the arcade behind the main shopping street, the business is an interesting eclectic mix of restaurant bar, off licence bottle shop and aged meat and deli. The food menu was simple with choices of burgers, flat bread pizzas or tacos although there was a steak option and a few other dishes. The food was great as was the service. The friendly vibe drew us in and will bring us back. If you are a group booking would be recommended.
