    My girlfriend and I popped in for a bite to eat and a couple of drinks before a concert nearby. Warm welcome on arrival, and were sat at our table without any fuss! Staff were bubbly and attentive, despite it only being a Tuesday night! Standard of food and drink was very good, no complaints whatsoever. We’ll be back. Thank you for having us!

    Really nice bar with good food & great selection of beers & American whiskey. The girl running the bar told us there was a 2 steak dinner for £25 starting that night, which we ordered and thoroughly enjoyed. Decent cut for the money, well cooked and great onion rings & peppercorn sauce. Lovely pint of Krusovice too, definitely recommend.

    Pre-booked for a Saturday evening. However, we arrived 30 mins early and expected to have to wait at the bar. We were shown to seats right away. Ordered drinks and food, which arrived suspiciously quickly. Although, to be fair the food we ordered if properly prepared probably doesn't take long to cook. Despite this suspicion, There were no complaints on the quality of the food which was flavoursome and piping hot. Quality and quantity too. Good service. We dropped into a busy pub when the rugby was on and some patrons had obviously been in for some time and had become very loud although not yet boisterous.
