We were just returning from a tour of Sun Studios and were just looking for a cold beverage and a sandwich. This is the place to go. Not only did we get a great lunch (our lunch was terrific) we had some great company. Hats off to Seamus for making us feel like we were old friends! Good hosts are... More

I was staying down the street and popped in for dinner. The beer selection is nice. I would hope that management will eventually pull together a hit list of what is on tap and in the fridge. I had the burger and fries. The burger was prepared nicely. The patty was properly cooked and the bun crisp. The fries were... More

This is a great place to stop and watch "football" that being soccer - lots of space and TVs. Sat at the bar and their were lots of locals that came and went while we were there- Dave was the bartender and he was wonderful. Had a naked cheese burger and salad, and my husband had the fish and chips-... More

This is a great little pub, and the food was excellent. I went with my wife for an early lunch, I think on a Tuesday, and they had half price fish and chips, which they have every week. The fish and chips were excellent, and only around $5 a plate. Nice atmosphere at lunch, quick service. The only negative was... More

I never give bad reviews, but people need to know about this & I don't appreciate being treated like crap when I'm a paying customer. First time visiting here with my husband to watch the US play & the owner was incredibly rude to us. As we walked upstairs exploring the bar, we weren't fast enough for him & he... More

We really enjoyed this place! Had the Sheperd's pie (but it seemed to have hamburger meat instead of lamb). Nice atmosphere, just super loud music. Will come back!

Best part of the pub is by the door, get in early and get the table and chairs. Nice air conditioning temperature you don't need a jumper which is great when it is 40 degrees outside 😥 good service. Can't comment on the food, but kindly they let us order in when the chef didn't come to work.

I really dislike giving negative reviews so let me start off with what was positive. When we walked in the music was really loud and they offered to turn it down. Secondly, the food was pretty good. We had Reuben egg rolls, the BELT, Reuben sandwich, shepherds pie and the fish n chips. No complaints on the food and our... More

This was fun and low key. I was disappointed to find out that they had a limited menu. I had actually made a call a few days prior to find out when they would open and begin serving food, they told me the hours but forgot to tell me that the menu would be limited to 3 choices. It was... More
