Huge chicken caesar salad, I'm sure it could feed 4 people. Pub style menu, friendly personalized service.

Tried the Flat bread place but no joy. Walked in here and wow. My wife wasn't overly impressed by the menu at first but what they lack in choice they made up for in quality. My steak was unbelievable, my wife had bruschetta chicken which was amazing. Big portions, lovely atmosphere, great service. A real find

Popped in for a quick bite on a couple of evenings. Good options and range of beer. Portion size fine if your from the UK. Hope the waitress with the knee brace has recovered.

This place was open on Christmas Eve and was in no hurry to rush us out. The bartender was friendly and helpful with beer selection, knowledgeable. I had the spinach, beet and goat cheese salad - it was awesome! They are not cheap with the beets or goat cheese. So fresh! Chicken wings were perfectly flavoured and were nice and... More

Nice atmosphere but this restaurant needs to update their menu to include those that are vegetarians, vegans and gluten intolerances. The only choices my daughter who is vegan and myself who has gluten issues were a salad or French fries ; consequently, would not go back until he menu is updated!

Decent lunch, this restaurant has a good selection of tasty food. The beer selection and choice was excellent although you can never go wrong with a cold pint oh Guiness. Definitely would go back.

Seated promptly, although the restaurant was busy (+ points). Server gave us drinks (twice), food, bill, and paid us no further attention --- we would have liked beverage refills (- points). I ordered the panko salmon salad. Salmon was average in taste, slightly overcooked. Salad dressing was nice, but quite a small portion of greens. I was still hungry after... More

We are here one night when they had a ribs special. YUM! The server was nice but a little slow .. unsure if maybe they were busy as we were 1 of 3 tables in the restaurant side.

We enjoyed our burgers, chicken sandwich & potato soup very much. Quiet spot on Sunday, which was a nice treat.Terrific server, very attentive and ensured our meal was as ordered. Rather pricey, but considering where it is, it is comparable to other spots, and very good food.

Thank M T
