Was intending a quick stop for lunch, but this lovely bar had a huge tv playing the football. Husband hooked. Food was really good and the service friendly. A good place to stop and relax a little.

My husband and I popped in for a bite today and the chicken fajitas were so delicious I had to sit and eat in silence. The atmosphere is relaxed, perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
