Location and contact

We are a chilled out coffee bar with an awesome selection of the best locally brewed craft beers. We have a fine range of Spirits, Whisky and serve breakfast, lunch, evening meals and sandwich specials all day. We offer a unique environment in which to relax with friends and have a full calendar of events running throughout the year. From Steampunk to our Wednesday Night Jam Sessions, there's something for everyone and we're always happy to host bands or to provide an exceptional space for private or business parties.
