Good Casual Place

A friendly place with a pub like atmosphere. Good cold beer and great sandwiches. Not a place for children cause it is a bar where adults kick back to relax.

A quiet place where everyone is friendly. The menu has a small selection of sandwiches but they are just the right size to go along with a nice glass of beer. Lots of artifacts on the walls.
