We had a visit on it's LAST nite (late October '17) as was closing for demolition as they are building a new hotel on the site. Hopefully the staff reopen elsewhere as great food and venue (sitting on the street watching the scenery).

The Duck's Nuts breakfast almost too big to eat, but I powered through it. Well worth a visit before it closes.

Went with my partner during a weekday for lunch. The coffee was good. I ordered 'the Reuben '. Definitely not close to any others I've had. Where was the cheese?? Pretty bland and we won't be back. Typical type pub menu. Staff seemed really disinterested.
