Went in for a drink while walking around town, what an experience... The bar staff looked like they were community service types, and needed a wash, never mind the place itself. The toilets were revolting, but to be fair, the guy who was too drunk...More

Still a good atmosphere in here , there was a bit of karaoke on when we went in . Not so young ladies but if you've had 10-15 they'll do , just don't have any regrets in the morning !

Just around the corner from the towny hell that is offered by other bars is this slightly alternative pub. Always music playing and reasonable prices. Always had a good time in here. Probably my favourite pub in cleethorpes.
