“Lovely service, okay food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We had the fish and chips, which were okay but not spectacular -- the fish was greasier than expected, with beer batter that tasted strongly of, well, beer, and the chips were of average quality.

“Great atmospheere and top notch food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

From the outside this pub is quite nondescript. Inside though tells a different story. Excellent service and food, along with very good local beer (all well priced) made for a memorable dinner. We certainly recommend this restaurant.

I had the seafood linguine and it was great! The atmosphere was casual with very comfortable seating.

“tasty but a bit pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

We had dinner here and while the service was very good the portions were a bit small for the price. We had the seafood chowder which I expected would be filling but it was more like a bisque with a few morsels of seafood in it. Can't fault the flavour though, it was very good.
