Awesome service!

The servers at the Firken are always fantastic. They remember their customer's beer preferences and are always really friendly. The food is not remarkable in any way, but the food service is prompt.

I don't understand why the service is so terrible. I have been here many times and the service is always slow. One Sunday around 12 we were the only people in the dining area and there was one man at the bar and we saw our waitress when she brought us drinks and brought our food. She never came back....

Fairly authentic British pub. It would seem that there is an expat community that call this their local which is always a good sign. Very friendly staff that recognize us and always make us feel welcome. Food is consistently good and fairly priced. I think they've had the same chef for a number of years. Definitely worth checking out. All... More

Had a lovely patio lunch with a girlfriend today. Sitting out under bright yellow umbrellas we had a terrific lunch in a relaxing setting. The servers were great - friendly and more than accommodating. Our salad was delicious - grilled chicken on a bed of mixed lettuce with tempura apple and a light, yummy dressing ( I asked for more...

Went here one night for an impromptu dinner and was pleasantly surprised. We have passed by many times and always meant to try. So glad we did. The curry was awesome. So tasty. The nachos were also excellent. The wait staff were very friendly, informative and attentive. The decor could do with some update as it does feel a bit... More

My wife and I have driven past this pub many times and we finally decided to try it. We were very glad we did! It reminded us of our visit to London, down to the curry dishes! We enjoyed the food, the service was good and the location itself was ideal. It was cozy inside, has a nice patio and... More

This place is an average pub, nothing special. The food was ok, once I found something on the menu they had the ingredients to make. A little on the greasy side, and the portions were small. I won't be back.

This cosy, British style pub is close to the atmosphere of a pub in Britain. They have a reasonable selection of drinks and the food is excellent. The staff and clientele are very friendly and it is a great "local" Nice place to drop into for a chat with friends.
