“Great atmosphere. Decent pub food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

This is THE pub to go to in Hillsborough. Great local beer. Decent bar food. Great atmosphere. Is crowded almost every night. Get there by 3pm on a beautiful day if you want to snag one of the benches out front. Highly recommend it!

Stop by for some Sexual Chocolate beer and the HOT wings. Great people and atmosphere. The craft beer selection is awesome. Great place to meet friends. Seating available outside.

“Best chicken wings this side of Tonowanda NY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Hard to believe you can find something this excellent in North Carolina! The chicken wings here are the best I have ever had. And I've had 'em up in North Tonowanda, near Buffalo, in a tavern near the Chevy assembly plant, where the locals insisted Buffalo Wings originated! Also, any fried veggies are really great. Try the fried banana peppers - they're exquisite! The only real problem is that this place is so popular, the staff is often overwhelmed by the crowd. It's a small pub, and it sometimes is literally elbow to elbow stuffed inside. If it's chilly out, wear a warm jacket and hat, and escape the mad'ning crowd by sitting outside at the tables on the front sidewalk.

Fun pub, great food, nice people, and reasonable prices. They have a great draft beer selection and even will allow you to taste test before you select.

“Nice Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Sit outside and enjoy Historical Downtown Hillsborough. Enjoy an ice cold drink and excellent pub fare or sit inside and take-in the beautiful old wood bar atmosphere.
