Such a great time. We miss your nachos, you cidera and the ambiance. Every university should have a bar like that! And good staff!

I’ve had nice baguettes and their sweet potato fries are delicious but this time I ordered bean burger which was the most disgusting greasy scraps of a patty I’ve ever tasted. I was hungry and had taken a second bite but I couldn’t stomach it....More

What a lovely cosy bar with a great menu focusing on burgers and traditional pub grub. Absolutely love the rotisserie chicken and the open kitchen service. Food is great value for money and portions generous.

Always visit here for a couple of pints or to grab a burger. Food, atmosphere and staff are always excellent. Great place to watch sporting events too, spent the last three years watching the Super Bowl here
