Neat, pub atmosphere. Had quite a few local beers to pick from as well as the more popular choices. The service was quick and attentive. Darts and TVs to keep you entertained.

Went with friends and the atmosphere is fun, cozy and like you are in a pub in England. It was a great place to socialize, drink lots of beer and enjoy some snacks.
