We had come to hear a Beatles tribute band but they cancelled out. A local band was quickly hired. They were excellent. Probably better than the tribute band would have been. Food was great. Nice atmosphere and excellent service.

Frequent this place occassionally, usually for drinks and pub food. It's pretty much basic pub fare. Any time there has been an issue with my meal, the management has satisfied the issue to my satisfaction.

The food has been great and the location is ideal for everyone staying in the hotel. I have watched things change as they try to appeal people in a tough market. I have been coming here at least 10 times because of the staff. I don't know all their names but the one person who has been here all that... More

While staying at the Best Western, we had drinks and dinner here. The atmosphere is warm and publike, the drinks are good with local wines and beers, and the food is very good. We liked the friendly, efficient service as well.
