Called in here as part of our Saturday night pub crawl. Around 9:30pm it was really packed and busy, took ages to get served and no chance of getting a seat. We only stayed for the one drink.

Caroline and I came here for a drink this evening. Indifferent and slow service considering there was hardly anyone here. Loads of empty tables that hadn’t been cleared. Tim should do a quality check here sometime.
