Nothing fancy, couple of TVs with sports, bar food and cold beer... not the place to go for your wedding anniversary but a nice place with friends to enjoy a few beers and watch the world go by...

It’s a great place to have a drink but it’s tooo small. If they can expand it would be great. But the drinks and the service was excellent.

I was disappointed with coffee americano, which looked like a regular coffee not the coffee from the machine which I was expected. And also the ice cream wasn't tasty, it was too simple....

Only place to get really for a late night. Alright music and quite busy. Cocktails are hit and miss but the beer is cold.

This place was buzzing when we popped in. The food looked great so we ordered the house favourite " curry and rice" absolutely delicious. Cheap. Cheerful and good quality. These words are usually mutually exclusive but not here. Can't wait to return.

A bit noisy romantic beer/ liquior joint with good spread of BBQs and Roasted meats. The crowd drawn is from all walk and a good social gathering at the bar. Good for business talks or family gathering. Atospherelike as ta Octoberfeste.
