“Great food- awful nachos”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The beer is fantastic - and likely mist of the food menu is as well. Unfortunately, we ordered the veggie nachos which was a tiny bowl of onion soup and a few tortilla chips. It was expensive and disappointing. I would definitely go back for the beer though...

Great selection of food and matching beers. There is a great atmosphere in the bar and all the staff are pleasant and helpful. My husband enjoyed working his way through some of the beers (I offered to drive!)

“Where the locals go”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I like old pubs. They have character, I like them even more when they serve ribs and they have spiced rum. I guess the fact that you can order a pale Vic or a dark Vic makes this place great. Reasonably priced meals and good watering hole. Come early or you wont be able to hear yourself.
