We went to listen to ballads. Stayed here all evening and night. Had a lovely time. Food was nice shared platter. Ballads were very good. Then at 10pm another band came on. They were brilliant. Can't remember name. Processo was on tap. All good

Good location in the center of town. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Ideal for going for a drink with friends there is a lot of space in the various floors, and often has live music which adds to the atmosphere.
