Visited this place tonight and paid a Euro to hang my coat and 50 cents for a pee! Dick Turpin wore a mask what an absolute rip off! Definitely would not recommend and Will not be going back!

The service is extremely friendly, polite and fun, and they’re very on top of their game. The drinks are resonably priced. The old-timey piano bar feel and the bar stools ON the piano really made for a great setting and a super fun night. If...More

Everyone loves waffles. True? Yes. This place is better than waffles. The music is just fantastic and on the two occasions I’ve ended up here during stag do’s, we have had a fantastic time! Well done to all involved in this place.
