“Hidden treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We found this place by accident, as we strolled the main street one evening in search of a pub with some atmosphere and authenticity.
We found what we were looking for. Part of a larger cinema and cultural centre but with a large bar serving plenty of real ales and good bar food.
Nice outdoor sitting area if you are a smoker or just want to enjoy the evening air.
Good friendly and helpful bar staff as well.

“Good atmospehere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

We went to the cinema here and it was very clean and had a good atmospehere, the staff were very polite and helpful, however this one isn't great if someone tall sits infront of you, because the seats aren't sat on stairs or a steep slope. There's not much difference in height between you and the person sat infront and behind.

“Buzzing during the Mint Fest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

This place is obviously a hubbub of activity with a brightly decorated and lively, chilled bar and lovely restaurant. There's loads going on there and the gardens are great.
