I live in Kensington and the majority of the are pubs are deficient in some manner or another. When Midtown first popped up it certainly screamed "Hipster Nonsense" to me. In reality, it's pretty decent. They have good specials and decent prices. The staff is helpful and friendly and the service is consistently good.
Try the meat plates, flatbread pizzas and the Esser Pino Noir - good value ;)
