Angie, the life and soul of HQ Bar and Restaurant. You’ll have the pleasure of us again soon! We loved everything, from the food and drink, to Dexter and the lovely jubblies! We’d highly recommend the baby Guinness’ and poached eggs.

Decided to try their Sunday lunch. Only fifteen pounds for three massive portions. Really couldn’t eat it all but tried hard! Thoroughly recommend the restaurant and the bar has a wide selection of locally brewed traditional ales.

Did I say that? We often go to themed nights and enjoy them, just go with whatever the theme night is. Also had great meals on the none themed nights
