Just a quick beer turned into something slightly longer. Great atmosphere in the quieter bar upstairs at the front of the building. Two very reasonable beers to choose from. All in all a very enjoyable surprise evening.

Always a brilliant night, with fantastic staff that keep smiling right through the night. Massive respect for all the staff putting up with the general public til the early hours, each and every one of them make it the cracking place that it is.
