The place looks good but unfortunately the musicians were really bad the day we went.. so we didn't really enjoy our evening and left after 30 minutes...

This place is great! The atmosphere is nice; so are the people working there. There was a really good live band playing when I went as well. The cider is delicious.

It smelled really bad in the toilet. Too cold inside. There was live music on that was ok. The barmen were correct.
