As there was no food, I will leave a high rating in that spot to reflect the excellent drink selection - the beer choice was particularly great! My group was served by a young guy who was so friendly and accomodating, and went out of his way to give us good drink recommendations and answer questions. The ambiance is cozy, clean, and unpretentious, with lots of cute little plants and warm lights placed throughout. The beer was delicious and served to me in a chilled frosty glass - absolutely blew me away! Will definitely be coming back.

Fun local bar / pub if a little generic in style. Cannot comment on food as we didn’t eat but main feedback is that the service could definitely be a little more friendly! One bar woman was borderline hostile and c’mon - just the odd smile or welcome would not go amiss.
