A lovely little bar, the smell of food was amazing and the menu looked great. Plenty of fresh fish and roast dishes... The decor is oldskool but really nice to sit in. The Guinness was excellent too which is the main thing! Right spot...

A great welcome here from wonderful staff and a good selection of beer. Food was good, a lot of pub classics and generous portion sizes. Ambiance was friendly, pub is lighter than most with a great atmosphere. Would definitely go here again for a causal drink.
