Good atmosphere and choice of beers. Loud, but in a non-threatening and sociable way. Went with my wife a couple of weeks later and it still felt safe side we both enjoyed the visit.

This bar is full of life, always plenty of customers and staff to match. The owners can always be seen there. A good selection of drinks and they have now started to do food too. A nice little gin bar attached too which is fabulous
