Great, fresh Mexican food. Reasonably priced wine and cocktails. Owner is super friendly and lovely to talk to. The cats are an added bonus.

Stumbled into this bar on a rainy day. Food is lovely so much so we went back again the following day. Friendly staff and clean bar. Definitely pop in if you can. You can't beat the steak sandwich 😁
