Love it here!

Everything about this place is brilliant! They do loads of different cocktails as well as beers, spirits, etc. The staff are all really nice and chatty, couldn't do enough for us, they brought our drinks to the table when I was a little tipsy, they brought over little bowls of popcorn for us as well!! The music is perfect, we were listening to Rush, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper and loads more. The whole place was so clean and tidy. The big green sofa is so comfy, if you get into the corner, it's hard to get out of as it is that comfy.

Odd Little Place

Don't know what to make of this one. Think Shabby Chic East London meets spit and sawdust.

Beer from a can, unisex loos, generally long haired clientele with questionable personal hygeine, yet there was still something fun about it. Perhaps it was the different beers that were available, or perhaps even just a little bit of rustic charm. Good value for money either way. Whether their supply model is entirely legal is not for me to concern myself with. Cheap beer, music, decent smoking area? Could be worse - it could just another brewery pub...

Cafe, gallery, bar, poetry, jazz, live music and the list goes on! One of the liveliest places to visit with the friendliest staff you'll ever come across. Oh and the community spirit! I've visited a lot of community spaces and never have I come across people as dedicated to making their town shine as much as these guys.

A Great Night Out
Dec 2013 • Business
We went to Stepping Stones as a group of 10 for a Christmas bash and had a fantastic evening. The food was delicious and plentiful, and the staff were friendly and attentive. They made us feel so welcome and catered for everything (even the forgotten vegetarian!). A great evening was had by all and i would like to send a big thank you to the stepping stones team.
