Nice evening

We were there on a Monday and opted to sit downstairs where the live music was. The food was good, the wait staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our dinner.

I was here recently while there was a show on, so it was very loud. The person I was with does not drink and ordered a non alcoholic beer. The bartender bought the alcoholic version of his drink, when we brought this to the bartenders attention she just shrugged and said "you said Becks" she would not exchange it and... More

Have visited this pub a few times now and the staff are lovely and so is the food but they have the worst bouncers in the city. They are rude , arrogant and refuse to listen to you . If you are in the age group of 18-20 you will either not get let in or told to leave after... More

This pub was giant! They had this beautiful glass dome in their main area and on the walls there was all sorts of signed photos of people who had performed there. We wished would could have stayed for music as it looks like a great venue
