Tips for you
Me and my girlfriend went here to watch football as not many places (if any from what we could see) show it. We stayed here for about four hours and had some food - the sausage and mash and the steak pie and chips - which was really good. Exactly what we needed as we craved some western food. The owner is really friendly and he and his staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable (put a big fan right on us as it was roasting hot) and he has a quality little dog if you are a dog person. All in all a great night and both our teams won :-) would definitely recommend even if you are not looking for sport
