  • Central location, great staff always friendly, excellent garden with shelter should it rain, usual selection of beer but had the best tasting guinness in here, did not eat here but the food coming out of the kitchen looked fantastic, live music when we were in there which was to a high standard.
  • Had the seafood platter was way more than I expected and all of it was great! The place was packed, the music was local and we loved it.

  • Very popular spot and it’s easy to see why. The food is fantastic. Thick cut pinko crusted calamari was tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Tasty pan-fried chicken with a lovely gravy. Perfectly cooked mixed vegetables. Generous portion of crispy fish and chips. Service was swift and the atmosphere is energized. We would certainly come again.
