Righteous Pint

Can't complain. Nice spot and descent crowd. The barkeep is friendly and they have vodka infused apricots. Cannot go wrong.

Found this place whilst on a Cruise recently. Were pleased to find they serve Speights beer & cider on tap & at great prices too! Pizza was delicious & the chips & curry sauce brought fond memories of England rushing back. Very friendly owner & would deffinitely recommend!!

OK, so the pub only serves pizza for food. It is great pizza and reasonable priced and the Guinness is good. A far better experience than the previous night at a fancier place that missed the mark by a mile. I would return anytime

We came to this pub after reading reviews and also wanting a Guinness. It did not disappoint. Great hosts, cold great tasting beer and the pizzas were some of the best I've ever had. We shared four between us, the margarita, pepperoni, prawn (my fav) and the special which was smoked salmon. The bases were perfectly delicious with Parmesan and... More

This pub was more in tune with its UK compatriots - you have to order at the bar, which is annoying to some but as long as you know what to do, it's not a big deal. What was annoying was the surly attitude of the bartender both nights we went there. They really did have good pizza though and... More
