Great place to chill for a relaxing drink as well as some traditional pub food with a wide variety of music on demand. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Stopped in for a drink and stayed for an early dinner. Great selection of drinks, nice outdoor seating, and some awesome music! Had the Fish & Chips and it was very good. Service was also very good, made for an excellent evening of drinks and conversation...
