My friends and I went to this place almost every night. It seems to be where the locals hang out which made it more fun. My cousin raved about the shepherd's pie. Nice cold beer and good prices.

Service is good. Shepherds pie, bangers & mash, are authentic. The dart boards, however, are electronic (no room to cheat, if you’re so disposed) Definitely a must visit!
