On a warm summer weekday afternoon a really eclectic mix of people descend on this little bar for drinks and from around 5pm a DJ.

You can buy long necks of Coopers and many just chug from the bottle, but there is also a good, and often changing, selection of craft beers to try when you get sick of Coopers.

Be warned this is a smoking bar but as you’re outside it’s just a small annoyance.
