Late afternoon to mid evening at this superb locals pub, this month's venue for our Friday evening group, mostly drinkers with just a couple of groups dining. Great atmosphere the three bar staff coped admirably with orders and glass clearing duties.

Late Saturday pm and a very relaxed easy drinking clientele. Improved by playing "Automatic For The People," by REM.
