It's a tiny Big Hands, I think it's run by the same people. Very nice vibe, staff always pleasant, love the jukebox. Last visit was spoilt slightly by a group of very drunk people, but what can you expect from a bar right? After they...More

Visited here for a beer, enjoyed the music and the atmosphere, staff seem very into themselves and are happy for customers to fend for themselves. It’s a converted public convenience. Don’t expect too much, just enjoy it.

Great little spot. Drinks were cheap and music was good. We had a great time. The only issue was that the toilets were a little bit unclean and could have done with some TLC.

Heard Mr Garvey talk about this bar, found it by accident. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, great atmosphere to the place, unique with a cracking pint of Guinness. Not to everyones taste bit hit the spot with us.

This place is unique and different. We visited on a Saturday night which probably wasn’t the best time as it was completely packed full. Good beer and large selection but don’t rely on sitting down to drink it. Would go again though just for the...More

Came here for a quick pint, loved the look and feel. Elbow fan, so had to visit. Equally very loud as it is very small.

Really liked this place. Came in during the late afternoon and it was really quiet. They were playing the Cure and then an hour later Otis Redding. Had a few pints, enjoyed the music vibe and the decor. I imagine if this was a busy...More
