Ok pub

Reminiscent of a student union! 2-4-1 cocktails from 5 to 9 and food is OK. The toilets aren't the best, but were clean enough.

It's sticky, dirty, and if you go to use the downstairs toilets be prepared for the smell to hit you when you open the door. You can lose shoes where they stick to the floor and sometimes it's so busy you get covered in other people's sweat when you're queuing at the bar. But that doesn't stop me from going... More

Quite a good friendly atmosphere in the daytime with plenty of customers eating. There are numerous TVs showing sporting events. Different age group in the evenings aimed more at the young

The pub is a decent enough venue for a beer and burger at a reasonable price. Seems set up for large crowds which is not normally my thing. However when we visited it was a great day and we got a seat outside just across from the old amphitheater and it was a pleasant place to while away an hour.
