Enticed in here by the duo playing on piano & guitar tonight. They weren't too loud so most customers were packed in their corner. Seems a nice enough place with a standard drinks range at reasonable prices.

This is a really nice place to be, the atmosphere is great and the place is really clean. The entertainment really didn't match the place, a shouty tone deaf singer is never a great start! The food was quality, I had a steak and it...More
