Very good food and friendly staff. Typical pub menu with burgers, homemade dishes, fish and chips, sandwiches, wings and much more. Everything tastes good. Reasonable prices. Great atmosphere in an old house setting.

It was my first visit; my friend had been there before. It has a good pub environment / atmosphere, but it was quiet for a Friday lunchtime. Consequently, I've not rated it higher. The bartender / waitress was friendly and helpful. The food was very...More
