We waited an hour before our table was approached to take our order. There were only 4 other tables occupied. Very slow service with indifferent food. We were given a table by an open door with traffic constantly roaring by. Not a relaxing experience.

We had been told that the food is really good and also read some good reviews. Sadly the reviews and recommendations were wrong. The menu is somewhat strange other than the usual things you expect to find on a pub menu. Really odd taste combinations...More
