Really not much to say other than completely average all round. Nice to be able to sit outside and watch the world go by and their garden wall is great.

Sitting outside is a definite plus! The music was quite good, but would be too loud inside. They have a nice selection of beers and very good wings. The portions are good and the prices reasonable. Good staff!
