Had a drink here before the match, very busy and a really good atmospheric with lots of singing and a good pint. Called back after the game got in early as close to our exit from the ground, very busy and a few drunks inside who had not been to the game, spoilt the atmospher

Called in for drinks and a snack in the form of bar tapas, southern fried chicken, salt and pepper mushrooms and nachos, all were very nice. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere too.

Me and my partner usually love O'Neills, so tonight we visited and decided we wanted some food. We've eaten here before and it was really lovely. However tonight we decided that we would have the 5 tapas for £16 with some extra sweet potato fries, it came to about £18 something in total, with my staff discount, it was around... More

The food was very good and very reasonably priced, so for that reason I would return here again just felt that the building... More
