Good food and Service

I enjoy going on Mondays when they have free corkage. The food is always good, love the lamb shank and the wedding salad. Have been going here for a couple of years now. A must try

I've been to this restaurant on three different occasions. Very friendly service. Great local tap selection. Try the beef tenderloin! Centrally located and an easy walk to local attractions. There's a descent wine list but you can B.Y.O. with a small corkage fee.

I had stopped going to this place for a number of years for no particular reason. I have recently gone back 3 times and was pleasantly surprised to rediscover it. They have also expanded their menu to offer vegan and gluten free options. I have tried these options and they are all very tasty and the portions are good. Everything... More

Had a lovely meal on Friday night with my girlfriends. The atmosphere is perfect for sitting and enjoying a glass of wine or a pint. We all had the Fish and it was FABULOUS!! The portion size was huge, and the quality was excellent! Can't wait to go back. They also have a great selection of local wines and beers.... More

Approximately 20 of us went for team luncheon. We pre-ordered our meals because we were limited to an hour during the work day. Service was great. Staff was pleasant. Everyone served within minutes of each other. Individual bills were handed out and money collected promptly allowing us to get back to work as scheduled. Food was very good and reasonably... More

We stumbled upon The Office on Friday night and even though there was only two seats left and they were at the bar, we had a great time. The food was delicious and great value. The service was excellent. We can't wait to return.

Nice cool vibe. Priced right and bring your own wine in. Good beer selection but cant loose with zero cork-age if you are enjoying dinner.

The roast leg of lamb and the Italian wedding salad was the big hit at our table. We all had a great time and were never rushed with very professional service. I will return for the lamb and try some other menu items.
