The Pub is a cool trendy place with an urban vibe to it. It had a real chill restaurant that served up some fantastic mimosas and cheddar peppers ! Loved this place!

We tried and shared the pull pork sandwich, truffle Mac n cheese, chili Mac n cheese, sliders and fish tacos. All were awesome. The truffle Mac n cheese was a hit with everyone at the table. Drinks were strong. Try the cloudy lemonade.
