“Avoid - go across the street instead”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Very in-your-face-security. Over zealous head bouncer won't let you finish your last order. The service here is terrible which is a shame because it is a quaint little bar.

“Quirky and good laugh”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Found this round the corner from our hotel. Quirky pub with lots to look at, good atmosphere and lively crowd. Barman friendly and good value drinks wise.

“Wish we had found this lovely pub sooner!!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

A great little pub with real atmosphere, real candles, good Guinness and friendly staff. It also stays open later than some of the others in the area. I'd definitely go back here!! We only wished we'd found it sooner so we could have spent more time there!

“High prices, low standards.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Absolute dive with a rowdy crowd. Very cramped too, amazed this is a legal bar at all. Also a horrible smell inside but that is quickly hidden by the array of cheap aftershaves and perfumes that abound.
