“Great old English style pub”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

Great venue for watching football or rugby.. Typical old English style pub. Bit dingy and grotty, but the atmosphere is great, service ok, prices reasonable and food palatable.

“The place for great pizza and a great view of the game”
Reviewed June 25, 2010

The pizzas here are perfect - wood burning ovens, thin crash, made quickly and perfectly, creative ingrediant combos. We cam time and time again just for these inexpensive gems. It is a bar, though, so expect the expected bar croud. Every single wall has a high def screen, so this is where you want to watch sports. We were here for world cup, and came back over and over again. This was our place!
