We called in for some beers and although a bit pricey at £4.30 a pint, was a good atmosphere and service was prompt. Lots of people eating and many bar snacks for £2.00 such as scotch pies and pasties.

Lgbt friendly, sweet bartender and server, chill vibes. Very nice drink recommendations and the best part for us was the food. We could easily come here every night, it was such a comfortable and cosy space!

Have enjoyed every visit to this place...and enjoyed some of the best soups ever! Together with other meals. Very friendly place. Always enjoyable, inclusive, generous. Great to see the Pride flag on its wall.

I asked for a pint of beer, and I saw the bartender putting soda in my beer. WHY? I wanted a nice cool beer not water.
