“Friendly staff decent food...”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We steered clear of the slightly dressy-up restaurant downstairs and headed upstairs to the bar. Great selection of beers and wines and decent pub grub. Friendly barman explained the various ales (unknown to a Brit) and it was great to try something else. Good value, decent food. Servings ample.

“Great Bar - loved the pizza”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We found the bar upstairs to be a great find, xbox kinect, pool and more to keep yourself entertained while having a few beers. Staff were great fun, We had the Blue ice pizza and probably one of the best pizza I've had in a long while.

Good food that was relatively inexpensive, and a very fun place to hang out! Very friendly staff made our night tons of fun, and they played great music.
