    The royal breakfast is an absolute beast. Great quality ingredients too and all for only £8.95. For an even more chilled Sunday, theres often a nice little reggae vibe playing too

    A great range of bottled ales and beers. The Brooklyn brewery beer that's on tap is a cross between an ale and lager. It's as gassy and cold as lager but has a decent ale like taste. Give it a whirl!

    The side of ribs are a must. Well porky burger full of flavour. Fries were disappointing. Too hard they hurt my mouth..the layout of the place reminded me of Fallow Cafe.

    Great Huevo Ranchero for breakfast and sweet services, but drink your first coffee of the day somewhere else.

    A nice cosy place for a pint and a chat. Their quiz is rubbish, but their live music night 'Shut The Far Cupboard' is great fun.

    Barbecue brisket open-faced sandwich (£7) with the Trof Special Lager (£3) is obscenely good. Definitely go for the chips, too.

    Brooklyn Lager at £4 a pint every time. Great value, and ace vibe to the place. They crank out some great tunes as well.

    A Bartender doesn't know the difference between a bourbon and a single malt. Also doesn't have any idea if they accept amex card or not. She learnt tonight though...
