This is a traditional type pub that is adorned with a music theme. We had a great time in here the staff were friendly and the drinks were reasonably priced. The live band started at 10.30 and played till 1!! Would definitely come back again

Love this pub. If you like new live music and a fun down to earth pub this is for you. As rough around the edges as it appears we only met nice like minded people. OK it's not a palace but that adds to its charm. Think spit and sawdust with a live energetic atmosphere and you're there.

Having rejected Park Lane's offer of £3 each to get in we went to the Apple and Parrot. It is a traditional pub with reasonably priced drinks but a live band was playing who were really quite good which made it a lot of fun. Would certainly return.

After visiting a few bars before here this pub was actually a relief. Just a regular everyday boozer. Drinks reasonable price. Good selection of bars snacks. Football was shown which for us was great. Bar staff here go above and beyond to please. Would definitely visit again.
