Visited on the eve of hurricane Sandy, this was really the only place open in town so used it to escape the rain.
First impressions on entering, not good, dark and depressing with stale odour and the dreaded plastic fabric table cloths. Luckily we were brave and ventured right out back to the bar where we were welcomed warmly.
We opted to sit up at the bar with our young daughter where we enjoyed a long leisurely lunch. My wife enjoyed her once a year glass of Guinness and I appreciated the selection of ales on offer.
The gentleman being the bar was an excellent reconteur and kept us amused and we also felt privileged listening the local chat of other guests. As a Brit it's always interesting to see how 'pubs' are interpreted by other nations!
In summary we enjoyed, good food if a little over priced, excellent selection of ales and good atmosphere but head to the bar! (No doubt the terrace garden would be good too in mild weather)
The front restaurant area needs attention to make more appealing.

We always love our experience at this restaurant. I highly recommend either the Shepards pie or the corned beef sandwich. You will not be disappointed. The staff is friendly and there is always something going--often live music. they also have outdoor seating so we enjoy bringing our dogs with us to eat when the weather allows.

If you get to try the bean soup it's suburb a small order of fish and chips is huge so don't worry that a small order won't be enough.

Great place to meet up with friends. They have live music in the weekends and it usually consist of a solo performance or duet. Nothing too loud which is great for me. You wont find lots of younger people here (which is also fine with me). The croud seems a bit more mature, relaxed, and fun. Great staff, always friendly. If you're very hungry, order the fish and chips. The portion is very generous and quality is very good.

I've eaten many a lunch here and rarely been disappointed. Nice variety and excellent taste. I'd go in for the potato soup alone.
