I have visited this pub on numerous times over the years. This pub has been on this site for over one hundred years. Yet I would say the vast majority of town regulars have never been here. It’s just a two minute walk from the...More

This place has a lot of live music. The best thing about this place is it serves I was in the proper way.

It's a nice little pub type of thing you do not find any more strange decor tho. Also one of the few places that I have ever found that sells absinthe!
