Nice little pub.

Food looked good and was extremely well priced for what you get. Would definitely recommend and will be going back again!!

Good food in generously-sized portions. They've got one of those twofer meal deals (in this case, two meals for 7.99). The place is usually not crowded, and the staff is friendly and quick. The beer is cared for (one barmaid poured out my Guinness because she wasn't happy with the quality of the leftover beer in the keg, and switched out a fresh keg before pouring my pint).

Unfortunately, the pub itself seems to be suffering from the area it's in--tourism makes up a lot of the area's economy, and the place feels like a place people go to eat or to have a single pint and then wander on to somewhere else. Not a bad place, just...transient-feeling. I stress that this is not the fault of the staff, who seem to be working hard to keep the place friendly and pleasant. Try to sit up the stairs on the right-hand-side as you go in for a slightly cosier experience.

Forgot to mention after closing time everyone used to head to Angelos just along the road which was late night drinking den where they used to serve those big old fashioned bottles of Grolsch with the flip top. Fabulous memories of drinking till 4 in the morning. I was shocked to see Angelos is no longer there and not even a bar. Anyone remember it?
