A terraced pub, it is part of a row of shops that are white rendered with a fake black beam exterior. The pub has a central entrance flanked by sash windows. There is a side patio area.
The interior is a single room, which starts narrow and opens out so the ceiling is supported by columns. The bar is at the end on the right and a raised area to the left. There is a pool table and a dart board and a TV, which had the Magic music channel on it - silent. The music did in fact come from the jukebox when activated - which was loud. The walls are cream and grey painted wood panel, with a white polystyrene tiled ceiling and a greyish blue carpet and blue stools and perimeter seats. There are a few music pictures on the walls, but it looks a little bare. The service was fine the clientele a few younger people.
Beer; no real ale, usual tap stuff with OK Guinness.
This is a holiday bar. Basic at best it does at least have the pub games.
