This old, quaint church has been turned into fabulous bar and restaurant - even the stained glass windows are there so if you want to enjoy the view make sure you go during the day. You can enjoy any meal on the menu - very tasty!

While I wouldn't recommend going far out of my way, if it's close to your planned travel and you like a good selection of beer, it's worth a visit. The... More

The general idea of this space is awesome. Service was okay. What got me was the prices of the food that were clearly all processed, frozen foods. Not impressed.
