This is a pub with loud music and has classic lively pub setting. Cheap drinks, 2 for 1 cocktails with plenty of choice. Good for pre drinks on a night out!

Good pub great beer. Catered for my dad on his mobility scooter. This isn’t a pub for a quiet pint this is a loud noisy pub so if ya don’t like it or the hustle and bustle stay out.
