8 of us went and had lunch here. Food was good. Server was super. Old place but the food and service well worth the stop.

Excellent food, great service and reasonable prices. Their cheeseburgers are to-die-for! Have never had an issue with anything I have ordered though

A quaint little country bar that was hopping. The DJ/entertainment was very engaging. The beer was cold, the staff very friendly. Would go back in a minute.

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.

What a surprise, this was the only place in Amherst I've haven't eaten. If you'd like great service, with a smile, and biig hello, this is your place. The locals are at the Oval bar, I sat at a table near the Window, Lots of Bettys in there so you know the food is Good. I have the dual porkchops,... More

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.
