|Kelley McRae and Matt Castelein|
The pub itself is a genuine traditional local with a good range of drinks. Their food is apparently excellent too. One bar was absolutely crammed when we got there and we could hear a small jam session coming from the other. Once the thirty-odd of us for the gig started to clear out upstairs, I'm sure it was more comfortable in the bars, but when we came back down at the end, the pub seemed just as busy without us! Upstairs is a small function room with assorted chairs and long tables. I loved the black and white timbered walls and the random decorative curios. Musicians have a tiny corner space and they were using mikes and speakers although, considering the space and the attentive audience, I'm not sure they needed to.
