Scotch Egg fans unite! Great pub and restaurant

I always look for a place with scotch egg! Found it and was pleased. Very busy. But didn't take long for a table. Big bar area, lots of happy patrons. Not so noisy that you can't hear your party talking. Also had fish and chips and beer. Was a great meal. I will go back.

Great for what it is - an English style pub. Low lighting, upscale bar food. Fun place that I'd go to again. Great if you want a sit down meal or to hang at the bar.

About the finest traditional pub food available anywhere! The marriage of traditional and original food is great. The waitstaff great and room warm and inviting. It really feels like you have stepped into a small town pub in the English countryside. You will be pleased with your entire visit.

This is the kind of place most of us would like to have around the corner. Friendly staff and a great selection of local and English Pub themed drinks. I was quite surprised by the quality of the food as well. I had the steak and chips and the steak was very tender and cooked appriately.

We loved the fun atmosphere and friendly service. We started with The Dipper appetizer and drinks. That hit the spot. Then we all ordered different things for dinner and everyone loved what they had. Be sure to save room for desserts because they are really worth it!

Have dined here many times over the years. Cozy, always crowded, with a friendly, attentive staff. Just a great corner, neighborhood bar and restaurant. Have never had anything I disliked. We tend to order their British food since it is good and not readily available elsewhere. Wing night a favorite. Wings half price. The big, meaty wings come in 10... More

We haven't been there in quite awhile so decided to go back. We sat at the bar and the bartender was very nice. He recommended the Fish and Chips and my husband and I both enjoyed our meals. They were wrapped in newspaper from England with the current month on it. Our only problems were that they tried to freeze... More

We probably dine here about 6 times per year and always look forward to returning. For apps, the Dipper or the Crab dip are favorites. Crabcakes are some of the best in Lancaster area. Always seem to have 3 or 4 daily specials that are a hit. Pub fare is consistently good as well. Fish 'n chips, served in London... More
