Very busy bar that serves food 2 years ago got gluten free beer which was a treat for myself at this bar but they do not stock it now. Live music excellent.

Spent a very enjoyable few hours in here sheltering from the rain. Had drinks and then food which was delicious. We then walked back to our accommodation in the sunshine.
