This place has it all, good relaxed atmosphere for having a few drinks and a chinwag, or perhaps have a bit of food which has always been fresh and good quality, or a bit or a dance in the night, especially with the live bands they frequently have there

Me and my friends always stop here on a Friday after work for food and drinks before our train home. The food is really affordable and tasty too. We all love the new addition of the 'Caesar salad' wrap to the new menu!!

I recently visited this establishment at the weekend with my stag party. We were in the bar eating and drinking for the most part of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each and every day the service was amazing, you could tell that the staff really did care about their guests. The food was not only very affordable, it was also quality!!!... More

The board outside looked inviting so we decided to give it a whirl.What a mistake,the service was poor,the wait for the food was diabolical and the food defies description.Basically just a rowdy pub with expensive food .Very dirty too with tables unwiped.

Service was so bad it was laughable, people had to wait so long to get served and when they did get served it was nearly full pints,(not full pints) expensive and rude.The so called security people were rude and not nice. If any other type off business treated the public like this outfit, they would be shut down.

If you'd like to speak to me about your experience as I would love the oppourtunity to fix what ever problems you... More

Once you have navigated the frankly terrible menu layout the food is at the better end of the scale that you'd expect from such an establishment. Good value when going for the burger and a pint deal. In a large group for the visits and no-one had strong opinions either way.
