Great atmosphere here regardless if you're coming for just drinks or a meal as well. The food is lovely; good selection, quality and portion size. It's even better that the prices are so low! Highly recommend it!

Hi Steve H Thanks for popping by and leaving a review! The fish & chips on our menu are actually made with gluten free beer batter (Estrella Daura Damm ) and Doves Farm gluten free flour so the texture does tend to be a little different to the usual.

This is arguably (in my opinion) the best cocktail bar in Loughborough and they make a mean long island iced tea. It is one of the nicer bars in around and well located. The food menu has a good range of choice although is more suited to a lunch rather than anything else, but have eaten here several times for... More

Good decor with some nice artwork on the walls. Service and food were good. Definately worth a visit. No pun car park though. Although there is a public car park about 2 mins walk away.
