A proper pub in a very convenient location. You can find a standard pub menu with reasonable price range, but the quality is not the best. (Not the size of the dishes) more

Good music (Lots of GNR!). Convenient Location. Crowd can be rowdy but it changes as lots of groups come and go - good people watching. Absolutely lovely bartendaress. Reasonable price for a pint given the location. Fast to get a drink. Looks like you can't get a seat, but wait a few minutes and a table will clear up for certain just with turnover. more

They have a basic section of draught beers and ciders including and couple they brew in... more
