All I can say is do not go here during the day. No live band and A LOT of shady locals. Stayed for one drink and high tailed it out of there.

Great place for live Blues and Jazz music, dancing and fun. I've been a few times, and I've never been disappointed. A good night out.

Stopped in here on a whim as a band that we had heard before (Young Uns) was playing and we had an hour to kill. Was not what I expected from hearing others describe it but it has a unique funky vibe. Have to agree...More

Hit this unknown pub for the first time April 27 and what a surprise. The pub itself is a little hole in the wall, certainly not fancy but the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The band that night Jimmy LeGuilloux!! First time for us and...More
