This has been my favorite place to eat in town since 2007! The food is always outstanding and the atmosphere cannot be beat. The cabbage and feta salad and flat bread fingers are not to be missed!

I'm hoping it was just an off day, but we had a pretty rough experience over Christmas break. Several items on the menu were not available. Something in the kitchen wasn't working, so that reduced our menu some more. The coffee was a long time in coming because she admittedly forgot. After ordering and waiting for some time, we received... More

This is a really great place for a lunch. The restaurant itself is a bit quaint and the layout is unusual as it appears to be in an old renovated house. Their sandwiches are excellent but they also offer a burger, steak, fish and pizza. There is not a wide variety on the menu, but it is good food prepared... More

Nearly walked past this place as it seemed empty. But the rear and upstairs were busy. Great find with great service and decent menu. Loads of beer options

We got some pizza here and it sounded sooooo good! It was a bit of a strange layout, we were in the front and it was quaint, but then walk thought the hall and you look like your in a different bar! We got our food and there were suppose to have roasted veggies, I lifted the pizza up and... More

This resto pub has a very nice ambiance and decor ... the food is ok but not great. We all had the Library burger which was very good, but very thick bun and served with side of bread sticks

We were looking for a good meal on a Monday evening, and felt like having pub food. The stairs were a challenge for me as I was recovering from surgery, but once upstairs the room was warm and welcoming. My friend ordered sampling of locally brewed beer and I had a Chardonney. I felt like something hardy but it was... More

My wife had the fish and it was still frozen in the middle. The server Erin defended the cook by saying I watched him cook and plate it, it looked OK to me. I am terribly sorry would have been right response!!! Bad Attitude

This is a a special place. A small and fun Irish public house upstairs and quieter and larger pub on the main floor. The staff are highly professional and attentive to their customers. Live music is a regular occurrence upstairs. Never will you see a TV set but you can always find stimulating conversation with people who are typically there... More

Went there for lunch; had soup of the day, bacon wrapped scallops, and flat bread pizza. Service was excellent and the woman who waited on us was kind, generous and very helpful. Though the soup was okay the food was pretty avarage. Will not go back.
