My husband and I enjoy this little pub. The food is great. I had the sheppards pie and my husband had a burger. It was great. I believe we had blue cheese chips too that were nice. I wouldn't recommend going during games or events....More

It's a pub in a university town. Microbrews and simple but delicious fare. Wait staff that we had was less than enthusiastic but the food made up for it. Cheers.

Shouldn't be a problem, especially if you're not picky about where you sit, outside or inside. Really nice covered patio, really nice pub, so either is great.
