We had a curry and it was nice...the pub just misses a special atmosphere. Small sitting places. So good to go for a quick bite but nothing to return for.

This pub is for eating and for a drink with different kind of visitors. We had a drink and some curry, it tasted nice. The atmosphere was good, and later that night there was also a Dj.

Looking for a quick evening bite, we ordered beers and meal. The meals, although after a lengthy wait, were good, plentiful and cheap. Recommendation: order a few more beers and enjoy the time.

We stopped off here for lunch with our kids. It is a small bar/restaurant that offered great service. The staff brought out coloring books and pens for the kids while we waited for our food, which was served in good time.
