Stopped in here on a Saturday afternoon of golfing and the three of us saddled up to the bar. Wasn't too busy, and the bartender Austin was a cool guy who knew the menu and the beers very well.
The beers we had were all good. I had the Barfly IPA and an apricot wheat and both were delicious. My buddy had a specialty beer called 'Decrepit old ale' that was really strong and on cask and he liked it a lot too. I also had a sample of their award-winning Dirty Helen brown ale. The beers were the highlight of the visit.
We also ordered some food. I got an order of the hot wings (they have around 5 different flavors, but I just opted for standard hot). I also got scotch eggs. These were the 2 things on the menu as highlighted as favorites. They both were good. The wings were breaded and had a nice spicy kick to them. The scotch eggs were rolled in sage sausage and came with a stone ground mustard to dip. I liked both a lot. My buddy got the fish tacos and said they were good.... but was not raving about them.
The reason for the lower score is that the place is a dump. It seriously looks like no one has cleaned anything or tried to fix anything in years. It looks old, decrepit, dirty, and that's before going into the bathroom that has a plastic garbage bag over the urinal, and one of the doors to the stall just laying against the wall. Filthy. We sat in the bar area which was old and dark and OK, but the dining room area, and the outside just are in dire need of a complete rehab.
If you go, I suggest sitting at the bar, and if you need to use a restroom, try to hold it until you get home or somewhere else!
