If you're feeling like fresh fish & chips, this is the place to go - super fresh fish & real fries! They also do amazing wings - homemade in-house recipe.

I know this sounds cliched, but honestly, even though the surroundings are basic, the food was hot and tasty and the steak cooked exactly as I liked. I recommended this to everyone for weeks.

If you want to sit around with drunk fools and eat bad food this is the place for you. The service is poor. The interior doesn't even resemble a pub. The parking is limitting and confusing. I am suprised more drunks don't stagger out of the pub and get run over by the near by train tracks. Avoid.
