Good Pub Food

We stopped in here not knowing anything. Since we don't drink alcohol I can't comment on what appears to be a big part of the business which is "craft beers." I had buffalo chicken wrap and French fries. The food was good, the wrap was almost too much to eat. Our daughter and grandson didn't finish... read more

My family and I stopped by for lunch today after looking at the mouth watering menu. We walked in and the place was almost empty. After waiting for a server for 14 minutes we left. So much for friendly service....

We looked at the menu for this place at the top of the tripadvisor page before deciding to go here. I had my taste buds all worked up for the Parmesan Encrusted Chicken and my husband was looking forward to the Chicken Parm. We sat down, ordered our drinks and then started looking at the menu. The menu they gave... More

I wish I could give two reviews, the female bartender was friendly, helpful and a joy to talk to. The male bartender was about as friendly as a rock, and I am being nice to give him that much credit. We will not be going back due to the 45 minute drive to get there and the chance he may... More

HOnestly, I am not sure what all of these people were doing there on a Tuesday night, but it was PACKED and if you wanted to eat dinner, tables are at a premium. Of course there is no list, so it's commando table snatching; simply ask the people who are already at a table if you can have it after... More

The food is very good but it's so noisy in here that you can't talk to your dining companions. Maybe try take-out!

Went online to find a pub to take a friend out for a birthday lunch - found WNP - gave it a try. Very glad we went there as it was enjoyable and a tasty unexpected pleasure. The pub is just a drop in spot - tiny place - non-descript. The prices are a bit more than other pubs though... More
