I really enjoyed to go there at night with my friends on Thursday and Friday. All the staff are very friendly. We had a good welcome... I will go again to try the nightclub and concert!!!!

Excellent live band though a little bit loud to have a conversation. Service is good and the place has a nice atmosphere to meet up with friends and have a drink. It also has a restaurant, dancing floor and karaoke on Wednesdays.

Rude service, bad food and drunk patrons that roll out of this basic eatery in the early hours. This establishment is a nuisance to the entire neighborhood and cheerfully sends drunk drivers out on the road.

This place seems to be a bit overrated. If you are looking for a delicious lunch or dinner you should look for it elsewhere. However, in nightime this place comes to life with live music and dance. So for a late snack and a few drinks this is a good choice.

Classic locals pub; fine for a drink and pub grub - nothing exceptional. I was surprised how empty / quiet the pub was for a Friday night - Expected a big night out; left before 9pm :-(
