Small pub that is also known as Greta's Bank and is gay friendly.

The bar has plenty of seating with mainly tables and chairs in the centre and stools down the wall on one side. There is also low tables and stools on the other side of the bar.

The decor is smart with predominantly oak panelling on the walls and a part marble tiled and wooden floor.

You get the impression that the pub has tried to retain the former fixtures of the Bank.

There is small spotlighting to the ceiling with a large suspended glass ball.

The windows to the front of the pub give a bright and airy feel to the place and outside there is a small area with metallic tables and chairs.

Regular music is on play at most times. There is a games machine opposite the bar.

The pub is frequented by locals and a mixture of gays and straights. It can be busy on most nights and especially on the weekend.

It is quieter early on through the week. Sunday Phylis & Folies entertainment from 6pm, Monday & Saturday cabaret with Miss Vicky Paris

Karaoke every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. Friday Miss Rory - 80's & 90's pop music.

Free function room available for hire on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

Disabled access to main bar is very good. Toilets are small and clean.

Price: Reasonable.
