A bit off the wall, good choice of beers and spirits. Small place that attracks a few characters. Long may this type of place thrive in the face of the ever increase of designer and theme pubs.

Gimmicky tapas type bar snacks, nice enough, but not a cheap way to eat. Beer was well-kept. Friendly barmaid. Lovely interior and items for sale in aid of RNLI. Bad point - intrusive and totally inappropriate background music.
