Dropped in for a quick meal with the family. Sat out on the front balcony and watched the traffic. Food was very nice and a good size so there was no wastage. Prices were very reasonable for drinks and food. Great staff

A nice way to spend lunch or dinner. Both seating inside and outside. Typical pub/restaurant atmosphere. Live music on the right night. Food and beverages is very good with good size servings. Service by staff is cheerful and courteous.
