I like pubs. Really, I do. Maybe we went during the day with kids, which killed the experience. The food was fantastic absolutely no complaints there. Definitely try the fish and chips and Shepards pie. The service was equally as good. This combination so far would normally make the pub a 5 star in my book. However, the smell of spilled beer on the wood floor and in the cloth benches along with the lack of light was annoying to me. Again, I do realize its a pub, and yes, I have spent time in UK pubs. Go for the food, the beer and to watch a game on tv, but if you go to hang out with the family, you will probably go and leave as soon as you finish eating.
