Always a good place to go for a few drinks and live music on a Saturday night. Staff are friendly. Bus stop right outside the pub and also local taxi companies are cheap in the area.

Not out, by a long way, judging by the crush at the bar. Probably the best family pub in the district with a reasonable selection of beers and comfortable seating.
