“Unless you are looking for a gay bar why...”
Reviewed March 12, 2010

Unless you are looking for a gay bar why would you go here when there are so many good pubs in town serving better food in a much better atmosphere.I would not recommend this pub to anyone,an indifferent pub in a poor part of town!
