Went twice last week. First day was amazing, couldn't fault the service - the food was delicious and the staff were very polite. The second day, the food was cold and it seemed as if the staff were on edge. Quite strange really!

Good regional beers and a wide selection of food with special offers at certain hours. It is located really close to the center of the city.
