Shepherd's pie was bland and uninteresting. Hamburger was good. Side salad with the pie had a vinaigrette dressing that would have etched copper -- incredibly acidic and inedible. Just nothing remarkable or memorable except maybe the Guinness.

We had lunch here and ordered the fish n chips and the shepherd's pie. The fish n chips were decent, similar to most other places. The shepherd's pie was excellent. They use chunks of beef rather than ground beef and the gravy is more like...More

Hi, Yes there is meter parking out side but it is only available at limited times. There is a parking lot close by but really expensive. Free parking available a few blocs away if you are willing to walk.
