Don't park across the street from the pub as it's $12 at night! One block farther down you can park in a multi story car park for $1.50! Friendly hostess and food was good - salad took a long time and when it finally came...More

Hi, Yes there is meter parking out side but it is only available at limited times. There is a parking lot close by but really expensive. Free parking available a few blocs away if you are willing to walk.
