“2 for 1 ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

It was extremely busy and a popular place, lots of different specials for each night of the week- specials mostly for shoulder and off seasons I think but lucky us. Tasty food and very generous servings.

“Huge meal”

The staff were friendly and a lot of fun.
This was a big pub feed, needed after a big day out exploring.
Loved the ribs.

“One meal does two”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The first time that we ate here we only wanted a small meal as we had had a late lunch. I am glad that we only ordered a small meal. This had us reeling. The chowder was excellent and the fish well cooked. The chips alone would have been sufficient. The ribs on the following night were really great. Forewarned from the previous night, we shared an entree and shared the ribs. A good value meal and very tasty.
