I visited here recently on a stag night. This place is a bit out of the way but worth the walk. The local beers are great and the place has a good atmosphere. There’s a large covered outdoor area which is a great idea.

Walked along the quayside and came upon this bar, the sun was shinning so sat outside people watching. Drinks reasonably priced and the bonus was there was live music on which we love, great sound quality. A lovely spot.

We spent a pleasant evening sitting outside on a summers evening with a pleasant crow. Good choice of beer and a lively atmosphere. It’s tucked away near some old industrial buildings but worth stopping by if you are strolling up the quayside from town.

We're obliged by the terms of our licence to serve all outdoor drinks in plastic containers, but bottles, for some reason, are excluded from this. As for the food, this is the modern "street food" way to serve food, so we can only assume you...More

Hi John, on Sunday the 5th of March we've got an award-winning blues band called George Shovlin & The Radars! Always a cracking atmosphere when they're on. Cheers 😉
