    Functional option in the University/Academy area; reasonable ale range, food decent, nice outdoors. Ale/beer fans should go a bit further to Sandbar; those going to see a band might prefer Big Hands.

    Bit smoky near the door to the outside seating area downstairs but great atmosphere and good food. The red wine's not bad either :)

    Kro eggs benedict was terrible, I felt a bit sick after eating it. Usually there is some strange smell inside. I've been at least three times and I never was satisfied.
