Magic Burgers

I have walked past this pub for years and decided to grab a bite today – everything from the way we were received to the music was impeccable. The host recommended some burgers off the menu and boy was it magic! I’ll be back!


Mid-week cocktail

Wonderful atmosphere and staff. I visited last week for a mid week cocktail (it was happy hour so how could I resist). I tried a Negroni on recommendation and it was great! Definitely worth popping in when you are in the area! I will be back.


Lively and Vibrant

Very lively and alternative pub split in two levels. Good selection of beers and spirits. I found the environment very vibrant and pleasant. The night I went there was a live DJ who played awesome music.


Great staff

Great staff and good cocktails. Place was lively and felt very welcome. Tried a couple of experimental cocktails here and they were all delicious!
