As much as we wanted to enjoy libations in the same watering hole as the Republic of Doyle people, our friends and St. John's locals strongly recommended this as a must stop.
This is a small space, so if you are intent on a table, get there early, or be prepared to wait at the bar. It's busy for good reason. Our group of 6 all ordered the 2-piece fish and chips, fries with stuffing and gravy. The $13.59 is a bargain for the 2 huge pieces of meaty cod accompanying an overflowing plate of fries. The fish is firm, fresh and sweet, some of the best in Newfoundland.
Draft beers include English standbys as well as Keith's, Rickard's, and local Quidi Vidi. Make sure to try the 1892, a crisp amber, but be prepared for the $7.90 per pint to add up quickly.
