Met up with a few mates for a beer and a steak. Beer and steak were actually pretty good, but the service was a little soul less - especially the guys behind the bar. Cheer up lads.

Really great place for saturday night drinking before going into town or instead of going into town. Reasonably priced drinks and some good offers. Fast service and friendly bar staff with a good atmosphere. A mixture of ages with a great DJ playing funky classics

Bar service is disorderly as they do not pay attention to who has arrived at the bar first. So you do not get served according to when you arrived, even if clearly they can see who has been waiting the longest. It seems as if...More
