It was a good place, the drinks are good. The burger is nice, the chips are not that good. Seemed like frozen and not fresh chips. The fish and chips needs improvement. :) But the place and drinks are fine. As well as music selection.More

Everyone loves it. Friendly staff and great food. Chef cooks pub grub and takes one away from middle east. The only downer is that it is on Le meridien premises.
