“Not British, and Not Wicked Good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's not British, and it is not that good. In fact, quite mediocre. The staff is attentive and it may have good pizza or burgers, but the wait for the food is long. Good beer choices, but please ask if i want 16 or 20 oz. We tried the parmesan panko crusted green beans. Though crispy, it looked more liked Italian bread crumbs than Panko and there was not a hint of Parmesan. The peppercorn dressing was flat and we added some spice To it. Needs improvement, but enough for 2. The flat iron steak was actually good and cooked just right but the haddock had a mealy corn flake crust and was unevenly cooked.

“Pub atmosphere and food---a good time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed our dinner here. Sat in a roomy booth. Incredible beer menu, great selection. Friendly server offered recommendations and samples. Buffalo chicken dip was tasty, as were the fish and chips. We'll definitely return next time we're shopping the Wrentham outlets.

“One our favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

My family and I love going here. The food is so good and the service is great. My kids love it too. They have a great kids menu. Probably my favorite thing on the menu is the panko crusted green beans. DELICIOUS!
