Food and service both are fantastic. We had fish of the day (salmon) and steak, cooked to perfection. Price is no more expensive than other bars, this place is full of character. If u like or miss british pub, fish n chips, don't miss this place.

had the pulled pork sandwich, my wife had salmon. She said she's had better. We both enjoyed our meals, great beer list, and some very good beers. Excellent service, meal hi-priced, not surprising!

This is a classic style pub with classic pub style characters to match. We had some chips which were ok and some beer that was great.

Initially I was a little disappointed the menu was only brunch items but the food did not disappoint. I had the eggs benedict and they were delicious. The usual food you would expect to see is there but with a slight twist with it. Delicious

Stopped in here with the kids. The staff were wonderful and found us a table even though they were fully booked. The food was lovely, I had the duck - very tasty. The kids tried all the puddings and decided the donuts were the best! Great food, great venue, great service.

This is your quintessential dodgy English pub smack bang in CHC, with one difference - craft beer and lot of it! Non pretentious venue where beer is drunk and alco pops don't exist.
