“All the football you need.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

I think they are supposed to have 27 screens here. It is very very busy on a Saturday afternoon, but all the big teams had their own big screen, and smaller screens showed a wide range of other matches and sports score services.

Not overly pricey either.

“Great food, but too loud.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

The food was great especially the spicy tuna steak. the sercive was also good. The only bad thing was other diners being extremely loud. Maybe some sort of partition between tables would help.
