“Forgettable experience”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We won’t be going back! My spouse and I had dinner last evening with adult children and were disappointed with the service (lackadaisical) and the food. Our meals were long in coming and when they arrived the food was cold, the roasted potatoes were old and dry, no flavor. It seemed like the food had been sitting out waiting for pick up. Overall poor pub food fare with limited imagination.

“Noisy and unkept”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Sorry, I guess it's a great place for the younger crowds who like noise and a rather "loose" environment, but for anyone looking for a quiet place for a good lunch or dinner, this is not the place. Great for happy hour crowd.

“Ale of the Gods”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

World class ales. Food is more than adequate for pub fare, with a varied menu offering everything from pizza to meaty things to vegan things. Service is generally good, but know that this is a busy pub so you're not going to get intimate personal attention. Highly recommended.

“Its ok.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Came in and it was very busy! We needed up sitting in the bar area. This place seems very... um... dirty. Too much clutter on the walls and ceiling. Food was ok, service was ok too. I had a burger but it was pretty non descript. Would I go back? Maybe.

“noisy but great suds”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

like I said if you are looking for a quiet place on a date go elsewhere, but good fun and beers ! The food is also very good and music in the summer is great.
