Came here on a Saturday night and the place was only half full. Guess it's a pretty sleepy area so wasn't expecting it to be heaving. Plus it made the bar look even bigger than it already is. Seems like a good neighbourhood pub where you can most likely get a seat and talk to people and actually hear them.
