We stopped in the early evening for a meal, chose fish and chips, beautiful fresh fish. The beer was also great. The waitresses were really friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere.

Good food. From a little more refined dinners to large portion pub food, this place is great for a bite to eat. They have a giant burger on the menu. Order it if you dare.

Best place to go for a burger-with choices for small, medium, large appetites. Other offerings are equally good. Love it here and happily come back when I'm looking for a casual, comfortable place to dine.

This place is a true hidden gem. The local flair is fun and inviting. The building is an historic icon in Ivoryton. Conversation between customers is encouraged (because the bartender turns off all the TV's), and the regulars are a friendly mixture of characters! Swapping...More
