A lovely big pub, strong German influence and a huge range of beers and wines. They also have an interesting and varied menu with an international feel. We both, rather boringly, had burgers but nevertheless they were delicious and generously sized. Good value and would...More

This place has a wide range of craft beers to select. Anyone love beer will love this place. It has a simply amazing environment with a great selection of sides, starters and pizzas. Though always busy but it should be acceptable considering the food.

These guys have a great selection of craft beers on tap ( one of the biggest I have seen) as well as great food. Pizzas are great and the ribs are amazing. Highly recommended

I had the fish chowder; my wife had fish and chips. They were both delicious, ample portions. My wife complimented how grease-free her dish was considering it was fish and chips. The place was very busy for a Tuesday afternoon at around 2pm and they...More
