This pub is now closed down as they couldn't behave themselves, loud music that disturbed the whole area. Drunk people everywhere. You don't go there to eat, I was there once and food is not their forte.

Caters more to the younger set I'd say but the food is good and great atmosphere. Good variety of food to choose from and normally good parking close by. I haven't had a bad meal or bad service at these chain of Restaurants.
