This all in one bar, restaurant and nightclub is open Wednesday to Sunday each week. The nightclub part caters for all ages and has an over 21 policy.

The Shack Revolution

Long tables with benches, this place is, as it says in the name, a shack but with a trendy and rather special edge. Stop for some cocktails or some great pizzas. It does get busy so better to book if you want food.
