Cult status for this venue. Some great small acts play here. The drinks are a little bit expensive though.

“Surprisingly good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I say surprisingly good because when you look in through the window it looks a little impersonal and bland and I think the surroundings coloured my pre conception. But once inside the service was first class, tasty food with substantial portions and good value for money.
