Usual beers on tap, quite small for the location but there is a free function room upstairs. Mixed clientele.

No food served here.

    They don’t pay their staff properly, there’s a rats nest in the bar and the owner has taken to harassing staff to get what he wants.
    If you’ve ever known anyone in the hospitality industry or you possess basic human decency you won’t support this bar.

    Always found the bar to be a great place to stop after stepping off a train. Met the owner a few times and he was always polite and courteous. Staff seemed to always have a laugh and joke with him when I was there. This flurry of posts look a little suspicious to me but Im just a punter seeing one side. Time will tell.
