Sadly no Hell Cat available. However, I managed to try ‘one or two’ other beers all were very well kept. The Fish and Chips was excellent. Will call again.

Nice place, great beer. A little loud but outside seating is available. This is a neighborhood pub and they allow you to bring your kids and your dog in.
