We popped in and were immediately welcomed, the bar is small has an interesting selection of craft beers and ciders, poured direct from the barrel, its a peaceful haven to have drink and watch the world go buy.

I went here tonight with a friend, what a great little bar. An amazing selection of beers and ciders. Very friendly staff. Great prices too, especially as it's on the sea front. Will be going back again soon
