This is a great place for an evening of pleasant live evening entertainment. Mark is a great owner with a good sense of humour and personality, we enjoyed having the chance to chat with him. We also visited here for a lunch time snack which was lovely and good value.

Hidden away behind the bustle of alvor this is a nice little bar with cheap pints of 'actual' super bock not like the other bar advertising cheap pints.. Good service, good wifi for kids and nice and relaxing spot for afternoon down time or pre night out drinks..
