Music

We wanted to find a pub with music at lunchtime and were recommended this one. Pints of Guinness washed down wonderful crab open sandwiches. We were in early and it certainly got very busy!

Had a mid-day lunch here with family. Great atmosphere, a HUGE sandwich selection on the menu, and any drink you can possibly think of. Loved the decor and ambiance.
