We bought a pint at the empty main bar, seriously putting the barman out of his way who wasn’t comfortable making eye contact or engaging in more than basic verbal communication. Ordered some food at the food counter and we greeted with a similar rudeness...More

Cool spot, good range of craft brews. Friendly staff & plenty of space for big groups to spread out; Cool vibes to boot. Be aware though it's cash only before you go, bit odd.

I love this bar. So simple in what it offers, great food and music. Lives up to its name as being very friendly. Huge fun has been enjoyed there by me over the past 35 years. It's a winner. In fact, I'm going there today!

This seems to be the place where locals and visitors go for a drink. Pretty big place with lots of seating outdoors. Laidback atmosphere. Good choice of local craft beers on tap. Live band on some nights. Good service.
