I have friends who adore this place, and it appeals to me because it's very old and has a lot of history.
Inside, it's very dark and not too big. But it's not dirty. There's a few small televisions and it smells delicious.
On our first visit there, we took my boyfriend's parents. The first thing to note: Their menu is VERY small. There's a very limited amount of items; I felt somewhat restricted. Also, their appetizers are limited, which you don't normally anticipate for a pub! It is ALL pub fare so you're not likely to find exceedingly healthy items.
Our server (can't recall her name), was very nice. She had a great personality and deserved a good tip. She was friendly and approachable.
Our ordered a club wrap with fried chicken and Buffalo sauce. It was DELICIOUS. My boyfriend's Mother order Fish and Chips and it was a big amount for what we paid! We also ordered Chili Cheese Fries, which were great!
My boyfriend's Father enjoyed the "Onion Soup".
The salad was decent, too.
My second visit? Not as good. We came on a Saturday with a few friends for a birthday and had failed to make reservations. We hadn't anticipated making some as it's a pub but we should have. Nonetheless, they had plenty of room for us. However, my server was somewhat rude. He seemed angry with us for not making a reservation, and the service he provided us was very slow. I felt very neglected and somewhat mistreated. Perhaps he was busy, maybe this had been a bad night. But there's not a lot of people there in general (it is small).
I ordered the "Grown Up Mac and Cheese" and it's delicious! Entirely excellent. The ham adds a punch of protein and taste needed for the noodles. The Garden Salad it came with was decent too, nothing spectacular, but good. My boyfriend ordered Fish 'N Chips and was very happy with it. My other friend ordered Nachos but wasn't too happy with what she ended up.
It's a neat little pub and full of history. The food is worthwhile and the prices aren't too shabby!
