Stopped here for Brunch before an afternoon performance at the Festival Theatre. Upon entering we were greeted by the screaming and yelling of a childs sports team and their parents. We selected a table in the back as far away as possible. The decor is pretty sparse and far from being any English or Irish Pub that I have ever... More

They offer great lunches. We go elsewhere for dinner. They have live music and this is very active at night. Most of the older ones of us are at the plays so it does not bother us.

This is a very pub like eatery with little personality. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable at a very small table. I ordered a sandwich which was as dry as dust and with very little flavor. My companion had soup which she indicated was good but not notable.

Thick dry bun on overdone hamburger with a single limp leaf of lettuce, soggy tomato and abundant strong onion. Meh. Probably better to come in at night and sample the assorted beers on tap.

We stayed at the Queen Inn (attached) and enjoyed a night cap at the pub before turning in.. it was busy with locals and the sporty theme allowed us to catch up on the score of the game while enjoying a beer with friends

Stopped for drinks, no food. Drinks were good, and the food looked good, but the ambiance was poor -- dinghy and floor littered. Hanging picture of the "queen mum" appeared to have had her nose punched in (late night drinking crowd?) .. won't be back!

Never had a bad meal here. Lots of familiar pub F and creative daily specials. Service is fast and friendly. Don't worry if there's a wait--it won't be long.

A nice, typical pub -- which is exactly what I wanted. I asked my server for advice on the local beers and was pleased with her recommendation. The food was good, as was the service. It has a pleasant family atmosphere. There were two televisions (showing sports, of course), but both had the sound off, which I appreciated. I'll definitely... More

Great, off road parking. Pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Comfortable bar seating. Bar team helpful and obliging. Easy to start conversation with other customers. And the sweet potato Fries with garlic mayonnaise went sooo well with cider and lager. We'll be back there for more.

Great place for drinks and food The servers are lovely and friendly Didn't stay in the front too long as I wasn't really interested in the live music. But the patio is good and the back room is great for large groups. Big food portions - great sweet potato fries and nachos
