A friend of mine and I went here the other day and for under £10 we could get a bottle of prosecco and it was quite nice bottle. It was a very sports bar atmosphere but it was still a nice place to chill out...More

What a grubby little place! I went here in high hope but left very disappointed. The beer was disgusting. The service from the freakishly unpleasant landlady was equally poor. Save yourself and stay away.

Was in this bar a few times during a weekend visit . Afternoons are football and horse racing . Night brought a more dance atmosphere with good music . Drinks are reasonably priced . Would definitely return
