Surprisingly good, lots of stuff to do, nice staff, good food. I wouldn’t exactly describe it as a craft beer place - they could do with a bigger selection or a couple more guest ales. I enjoyed my burger.

It has outdoor heaters which did the job when I went; a jumper / hoodie would be best. If it's full of people you won't feel the cold 👍🏻
