Did not expect a cool little pub like this in the immediate area. Very cheap but excellent food - open faced steak sandwich and tater tots were incredible. Adequate beer selection, very casual local bar type feel!

Sat outside, waffle restaurant next door busy too. Bar empty at 1pm, didn't matter, outside was fun. Perfectly cooked chicken and very fresh greens. Great, friendly service from early-arrival staff.
