“Excellent - get there early as it gets really busy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

What an undiscovered gem, this bar gets very busy with most tables gone by 7.15pm. Although theirs seating outside the bars long enough to seat 20+ so waiting your turn for a table isn't a problem. With three pages of beers in the menu you'll struggle not to find something to your liking. Steaks are from Scotland with only one of the several from a locally produced source. My steak was cooked to perfection, the Pepper sauce was just right and the chips, well we all know how the belgiums love their chips.

All told a wonderful experience a real credit to the owner and it's staff. I will return.....

“Busy but gooooood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is an old style pub. Busy but full of caracter. Don't go here for a romantic diner, but go here for a real pub experience with excellent food.
Great meat, french fries and fantastic beers. Prices are reasonable but not cheap.
