Nice place with good choice of beers. Good to have dark beers as a regular choice not like other pubs that only have rows of light beers with the rare dark one. Highly recomended.

Great shop in a good location. Got some cold cans. Didn't drink in due to the weather but would do on another occasion. Hopefully it continues to grow its selection as it gets more business. Barman was also very nice to us all.
