Called in after dinner one evening. A live band was playing that was very good (don't know their name though!)

It'sbecoming a regular haunt for me and my wife and various friends. The band really know how to rock. Alcoholic drinks reasonably at night and the coffee they serve day time is secondto none. I'm a lover of both!
