This is our local. Great to have on our doorstep. Good food and lots of offers depending on which night you visit. Quiz night is good fun too. Warm and friendly welcome and a good range of drinks.

Nice for karaoke. Food was mediocre and environment was average. Very comfortable if you're from working class backgrounds.
