From the service to the food- we were impressed. Valet parking and the Dyson hand dryers were both enigmas in this off the beaten path pub. After we had left it dawned on us, both were part of a great effort to make the experience memorable. Highly recommend The Whip if you are looking for a great local pub, with... More

We recently went there on a Sunday afternoon at 4PM for a late lunch/early dinner on and expected to find the place empty. We were wrong, it was packed and we... More

Frequently stop here for a pint and something to eat. Everything on the menu is delicious. Great place to hit during the summer to sit on the patio.
