Bartender looked liked he just got out of bed. Guinness was good. You should take the wings off the menu. For what what you charge for the wings, they should be of better quality and size. I've been a regular at this chain, 1st time at this location. Your brand is no longer consistent thru-out... read more

Went for dinner. Ordered drinks, bar rye was delivered and so watered down it looked like rum. Thankfully ordered mix on the side. Waiter said it was the ice melting. He brought another drink straight up. Food was mediocre at best.Service was slow. Not worth the money. Won't be back. Unimpressed.

Surprisingly good for a pub. Try the lamb shank; truly superior. Mark the bartender is a real pro. Borderline psychic.

Where to begin. We had super slow service from our waiter. I had to walk in from the patio to the bar to get a glass of water. He rarely checked in on us. But apologized for the kitchen being slow...go figure. Very poorly prepared Calamari. It was sliced so thick it wasn't properly cooked. We sent it back and... More

Been there on Friday night and witnessed a good band playing. Enjoyed the Hart beer, some whiskey and delicious calamari with the salad. Had a great night, would recommend this place for group of people or couples. You won't regret.

The fish and chips were excellent and our server (Mark) even went to the extent of making us a lemon drink since they didn't have lemonade. There was a group while we were there so we were warned it may take a little longer to get our food than normal. Our meals actually came before the group which we appreciated.... More
