The HQ bar serves excellent meals at affordable prices. There are also themed nights which are good value. Meal is always excellent and served quickly and efficiently, with a smile

Great little spot with a warm welcome. Goat cheese starter and Pork Belly main course hit the spot. Wouldn't hesitate recommending the HQ Bar and Bistro to anyone looking for a no thrills, no nonsense bit of good grub.
