An pucan had a really nice atmosphere. The outside area is really cute, lots of flowers as heater to keep warm. 20% off cocktails during the week and they're really nice! I had a strawberry daiquiri which tasted really fresh. I'll definitely be back!

Very large selection of whisky (over 200) and nearly a dozen draughts on tap. Very chill vibe in the pub, and a great duo of guitar playing vocalists, very enjoyable experience.
