I was in town on business and stopped in for a casual drink. The two male bartenders there that night were awesome bartenders. I had a great time at this place.

The bartender is quick to tell you what they don't have, but doesn't want to tell you what they do have. I use to love it here..

While visiting Lakeland for the first time, it was plain to see that as the sun goes down, it's slim pickins as far as finding a unique place to have a seat and order a drink. This pub has friendly bartenders and a stylish Guinness...More
