Go there regular on my many visits to the Sealawn B&B next door. Very busy Pub so says a lot. Everyone from doormen to B/staff polite folk. Beer 'aint cheap, but the bands have to be paid for.

We all had a great night, everyone enjoyed their food. The staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble. We are in agreement that we'll be back next year as it was such a good atmosphere. Thank you for a good night.

Cracking place although probably could get a bit manic during busy times. Great selection of beers served by very welcoming staff.
