The service here is fantastic!! We ate a couple of times for early suppers as we had our three year old with us. Food ranged from fish & chips, burger to roast lamb all around. Very good indeed. Happy hour drinks made drinking a lot more reasonable also. Gets but more raucous the later it gets and on weekend nights.... More

It was lovely sat outside, a balmy evening with the Burj Arab lit up behind us. Free bubbly for ladies all night on Wednesday, it gets busy so best to book. Had their signature Fish & Chips, possibly the best I've ever had, the fish was beautifully cooked, batter crisp and not at all oily - stunning! Definitely go!

The food on the menu is just lush. There's something for everyone and the staff are very friendly and tentative. You can also watch football, rugby, baseball or whatever's on at the time without it being too intrusive. Great bar!! 👍🏻
