The toilets have improved a lot. They've been refurbed and are clean. Oh and we managed to get a table.

That's the positives out of the way unfortunately.

Beer selection is still poor. Apart from the Aspalls, but that tasted awful and couldn't manage much of the pint, so left it for another of our party to drink.

I ordered what turned out to be the worst chicken wings I've ever had....more

It does what it does well.

So I am not a big fan of thrash metal/hard rock but if you love a good dive bar that attempts an American feel (with weird porn on the TV screens - yeah don't take your kids there) then this is the place for you. I have been a few times in the past, it's loud dark, has pool tables and table football, last time I was there I made the mistake of asking for a...more
