Local, and always from-scratch, our pub grub is the best in the area. Everything is handmade, from pub classics to eclectic favorites. We focus on cooking with craft beer. We have 10 taps for our amazing hand selected craft beers. A small selection of local wines and hand-crafted local ciders are also available. Live music! What more could you ask for!

I swing by here after work every few weeks. Beers are great, but I've left hungry more than once. My only complaint is sometimes their portions just aren't big enough.

Great little old bar. Many of the best local beers - and there are many. Surprisingly really good food. If you're lucky there be a local band. If not there are conversations with all.
