Based on the Tripadvisor reviews that I read, which rated this the top bar in the area, I was looking forward to finding a bolthole where we could enjoy a few drinks and bar food in an attractive environment. It's hard to find anything positive...More

This bar has a unique theme. It is well known and visited amongst the locals which means it is good. The service is nice and you feel welcomed. Only concern is it a smoking bar and it is not very big. If you hate cigarettes,...More

Thank you for your kind review. We do try to keep the smoking to a manageable level but because it is a smoking bar it does attract the customers who do, and it has always had a welcoming character for everyone who likes the mix...More
