There is plenty of comfortable seating in a small raised area at the front with some seating by the bar. There is also additional leather backed seating with tables and chairs to the rear of the pub.
The decor is very smart and there are framed pictures advertising forthcoming music events and music themed pictures displayed on the walls. Regular music is on play at most times. There is a bar downstairs where Live music is a regular feature on a Thursday - Sunday.
