After a series of disappointing experiences we were received with a smile, and received prompt attention. The drinks menu is solid, prices are sensible, the atmosphere is relaxed, what more do you want in a bar?

Have been many times to this bar over the years and it has such a good atmosphere. It is small, cosy, casual and done up well. The age group is also good not young and noisy 18 year olds.Good service. The waiters are friendly and generally a nice place to hang.
