Popped in here Saturday with a Hen group and it was amazing. The barman was super friendly and accommodating to the whole group. They have a lovely walled in area out the back which is perfect for a girly chat. Couldn't recommend highly enough

Passing by, the place appears to be one of those throw-back General Store / Bar combos, but once you're inside, you realize the general store is basically a false front. The bar itself was nice, and between bottles & taps, they had a nice beer...More
