Nice food and drinks on tap. A bit too noisy for my liking but very nice ambiance nonetheless. Loved the rhubarb cider.

Loved this place; for beer lovers, they have 19 brews on tap. They also have delicious pizzas, and the burgers, etc. looked yummy as well. The atmosphere is cozy and very friendly.
