Ambience was great, food was hot and very good. Wait staff was attentive and helpful in making suggestions for food. Prices reasonable. Food place for a small celebration.

“Great atmosphere, friendly people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I have never been disappointed here. Great beer, nice people, unique atmosphere. When I asked someone behind the bar who was winning the SF/Detroit game he looked at us and said "what sport?" in a British accent. So funny!

“Love the Toad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Authentic English pub with real Brits on staff. Great selection of draft beers including hand pulled and endless selection of bottled beers. Food is good pub fare and reasonably priced. Service is good and always friendly. The parlor with the fireplace is a great place to spend the afternoon trying different beers and chatting with friends. Trivia night on Mondays is always a hoot. Great mix of customers from college to senior citizens, always good time to be had.

“Great British Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Had lunch here on a Saturday. Great atmosphere and great food. Not to busy, but I suspect that changes at dinner time. This place has a good selection of beers and a great selection of whiskey. They actually have a 4 page special menu listing all the whiskeys available. Had the cheese platter - it was great. Had fish and chips, also great as well as the burger and salad eaten by my compatriots. there were actually customers there with British accents - that says something

“Cozy atmosphere, friendly and great drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Not alot of room but that makes it cozy and easy to socialize. Have a few special drinks-I like a Snakebite with Labatts beer and hard apple cider for a start. Good food too!
