Sadly missed happy hour...$5.90 for a pint of pale ale which was very nice. Shared the nachos $15 for a plate. They were ok. Could've done with more jalapenos and a bit longer cooking time as some of the cheese hadn't melted... quite pricey for...More

We stopped in just as they opened - it is a very cool pub, set in a beautifully restored old building in Casco Viejo. And it was happy hour! We had a porter, which was very good, and the ceviche - which was amazing! (and...More

Great happy hour beers! All beers were 1/2 off! This pizza was also the actual best vegetarian pizza I’ve ever had in my life. I ate here three times during my visit because it was so good! 10/10 recommend!
