The staff were really busy but very friendly and fun, we had a good laugh at the bar area. We stayed for about 3 hrs and had a good laugh. Best part was we were aloud to Vape inside the bar. Perfect night.

this is a good little boozer and full of locals. It is a lot bigger than appears from outside as it is very deep so once you've squeezed past the bar crammed with regulars you can sit on your own out the back!
