“Great family restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Took the family for dinner tonight. Great food and great service. Prime rib was great and the kid's meals were awesome - great homemade chicken fingers too. We'll be back for sure.

“New managementment makes all the difference!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

This place recently got new management and I'll tell you - what a difference. The place was falling apart before. It's quite a landmark place in Burlington. My wife and I had our stag and doe there about 7 yrs ago and it was ok, but since the new management, they've cleaned up a bunch of the restaurant. They have lots of events, the food is much improved and the place is starting to draw back people who gave up on it in the past.
While I liked the old place, I really like the new place and I've met a couple of the new owners - they're younger and have great new ideas.

Time will tell with these guys but all the improvements I've seen already are well received. Looking forward to heading out there one night for Kareoke and a couple of pints.

“...where everyone knows your name”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

This has to be one of the friendliest British style pubs that I've ever had the pleasure of frequenting. The owners are always present... friendly, generous and make a point of welcoming you. The staff are super friendly, courteous and efficient. We frequent this restaurant/pub on a weekly basis and have been doing so for years. I highly recommend checking out this pub.

“IT'S NOT CLOSED”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

The other review is misleading. It has been renovated. Great pub. Food is good, never had a bad meal.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

It was closed for a while but now open again.
The service was great, the atmosphere was good. Rumor has it, it gets hopping on weekends but we had a great time none the less
