Nice decor and friendly staff. It is a cafe bar, so early visits are mandatory for those who don't want to be there for music and crowds. Food is served 4pm-9pm during the week. It's higher end pub grub. Very well presented. I'd recommend the bruschetta. They do show sports matches, so you may want to be aware of any... More

Visited with a friend for a few cocktails whilst on a trip. The atmosphere was warm and inviting as well as the bar staff being friendly. Love the layout of the place also!

The rude and aggressive staff and bouncers means I won't be gong back again. Overpriced and with an overinflated opinion of itself! Do yourself a favour and visit other pubs in the area.

Came in for some food and drinks for a bday celebration, sorted us out with a lovely table, food was delayed a bit and we were given 20% off food and drinks. Served by Fiona and she was really helpful anything we needed Can't ask for much more thanks a million!
