Myself and 3 of my friends were out for a few drinks last Saturday afternoon and came across the local. We took our seats at the bar and had a few beers, great choice of beers it was to. We decided to have some bars snacks, chicken wings and things. When we got our bills to leave there was an 18 % service charge on our bill????? Not 18% on our food but our overall bill, so basically charged for being served beer???? To top things of when paying the bill the bar tender had the ordasity to ask if we wanted our 6$ each change thinking he was getting a tip........... Get little bar with good food but people need to be made aware of the cheeky service charge for not really getting service.

We ate here for my son's birthday. Staff was friendly and the food was good. I had the steak sandwich with fries, the fries were not the best that I have had as they were crisp even with gravey. I would go back just not order the fries.
The signs on the restrooms where a little confusing. Had to check them twice to make sure I went to the men's.

For pub food, it is a notch or two above what you would expect. Nice presentation. could easily be a great casual date night.

My favorite restaurant in the Hat. The tap selection is second to none. The burgers are by far the best in the city. Great brunch too! The servers are great. Can't say enough good things about this place.
