Very comfortable location if your alone or with friends. Good selection of drinks and friendly staff inside. I come often for a quick drink or to pass some time. Great people watching on the Patio.

Nice central place to stop for a beer or two whilst watching the world go by. Good selection of beer and goot waiting staff. Prices reasonable too.

This is a central resturant with seating outside. It has a pleasant atmosphere. The waiters are attentive. The meals are very reasonably priced for good light or main meals. Wine and beer went down very well. Definitely recommend this place.
