Would not recommend this place at all unless you like staff with the customer service of a plank..... unfriendly and unwelcoming and the food well I'd have rather paid the £7.50 I paid for the voucher for something out of pets at home as it was only fit for a dog... the burger was Gressy and on a Moldy roll...

A big bar with plenty of seating that allows bigger bands to play there. I like live music and have never been disappointed with the bands playing here. Good selection of beer as well.

Met up here with friends before eating nearby, friendly welcome from staff, a good wine list at a very good price, sat on comfy leather couches at the large window, and enjoyed our drinks

Knowing McDaniels had a big screen, me and a few friends planned to spend the afternoon here watching the football. When I ordered a round the barmaid just held her hand out, no indication of how much I was due to pay. When I asked her how much it was she barked "well it'll be more than a tenner!" -... More

Had yet another very tasty lunch here on Saturday. Took a chance ordering chicken tikka, not knowing if it might be too spicy. However I needn't have worried. It was delicious. My daughter had scampi which she said was equally good. Highly recommend this place!!!
