  • Great for good weather but if it's any way cold then not the best place for drinks. Always quite a random mix of people, rarely any seats from about 8 on. Some good bands and cocktails are nice but quite slow in making them. Would need to visit during the week to see if the atmosphere is any better. Staff are usually very nice but one or two need to change their attitude. Overall not the worst
  • Went here on a Friday night. There was a huge crowd outside and there was a DJ playing cool music. There is a wide range of beers available and tons of staff, so the service is fast. The cocktails were just ok and quite expensive. The atmosphere is quite nice, although the toilets were much to small for the amount of people there. Queues for both male and female toilets. This may simply be a result of the good weather that was causing a huge crowd to go here.
  • Great pub great selection of craft ales and beers £4.50 average price. The taphouse also has a cocktail bar with an amazing selection for the ladies but there is a wait when busy..
  • Great little bar with good beers. Could do more on board the beer selection given the name! Brilliant gin menu though. And great for sitting outside when Derry occasionally gets good weather!
  • Great and friendly food great child friendly nice atmosphere drinks reasonably priced
