3rd time we’ve tried this place and don’t think we’ll go back. Just don’t care for the vibe or the food. But that said judge for yourself.

Located round the corner from the university, this is a pretty standard bar masquerading as an "English" pub presumably because it sells Guinness. Friendly service and reasonable food go with a good range of beers. Unspectacular but perfectly acceptable.

The menu was not what I expected from an English pub. Fish and chips was about it. Also, no Cod fish. The burger I ate was good, it was not what I wanted from this type of restaurant.

The service was extremely slow, only one waitress, but the chicken fried steak was the best one I've ever had! I will go back and wait on myself, bus tables or whatever I have to do.More

This place has pretty decent food, but they act like they invented beer. I do not recommend this place if you want more than one beer.

Awesome gluten free food and safe for someone with Celiac Disease. The wait staff and kitchen are very knowledgeable about cross contamination. My daughter and I have never gotten sick from eating here. I love this place!

Many students and casual late working folks eat and drink here. The food has always been good. The atmosphere is fun and very pub like. You can find all types of beers there. It's .mainly sandwiches on the menu but always delicious.
