Saw The Real McKenzies here doing their acoustic set. Cozy venue for gigs with relatively cheap drinks, opportunity to meet the bands and cut away beer kegs for urinals. What's not to like. Recommended

Nice traditional pub with live music. Drinks cheap compared to the town centre. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. The Blondie tribute band Blondied were just fabulous and packed the place out. Will certainly return.
