As a local I have been here plenty of times.

Here's a surprise...so few (just nine) recommendations for Cravings Gastro Pub and the Chill Bar. No surprise, though, that so many (eight out of nine) ranking the venue as Excellent.  As with the previous reviewer, we have been regulars for a couple of years and can confirm the high quality of welcome, service and food (oh, and the drink). The menu... More

Had several good nights here on our weeks holiday. The welcome from the staff was 1st class! The locals also made us feel very welcome. If you want a good night out with some great live music, pop downstairs on the weekend or on a Thursday night. They also have other live music offerings other nights of the week. Age... More
