We had the usual suspects: - fish bites (great, little bit spicy haddock) - lamb burger - one of the best burgers in the world - absolutely amazing - red beer and blueberry beer And great service. The interior is also very welcoming.

Food is alright. Service is very slow. Appetizers arrived slightly after the main course. Service was generally slow all around. Made reservations from the website, only to be advised when we arrived that they dont take reservations and to "find a seat". Food is alright.
