Interesting and tasty menu without being extraordinary. Service was attentive and well timed. Citrus Cheesecake was a standout but everyone was very happy with their meals. Nice to see local wines featuring.

A wonderful place to have a casual dinner, a good selection for dinner and drink options. We were there when a great sports game was on television and it was a fun place to be

Nice spot with onsite parking, good food quality and quantity like an old school pub in the good sense that is. Consistently good quality food and service popular with locals best to book normally
