Very nice appetisers included jerk wings, meat and cheese platter, and falafel. Excellent burgers and traditional fish and chips. We drank craft beers including a cherry ale. Really enjoyed it. And the service was excellent!

Make sure you ask for Grace's table, she was so helpful and cheerful that we asked for her table when we went back. Great outdoor patio overlooking the water but the inside atmosphere is fun too. One of very few Breweries that have a good...More
