Neither my wife nor I drink beer, but we stopped in for a glass of wine. The staff was friendly and the price reasonable. The establishment was very busy.

To the best of my knowledge I believe you can book a table because there is an upstairs area and a restaurant to the side owned by the same people it' a great place to have drinks. Hope this helps.
