We stopped in for dinner on Labor day at 1800hrs. Great service on the rooftop patio. Had water served immediately which was great on a hot day. Fish and chips was the special, and boy did it not disappoint. The old barley burger was very...More

You don't find many patios is Westboro, so this was a nice change. The food we had for dinner was good, overall it is above average pub food and the meal itself was well priced overall. If you are looking for a low key relaxed...More

My buddy and I visited mid-afternoon and very hungry. We were met quickly by a very nice lady server and had some craft beers on the table in short order. The menu was surprisingly varied for both food and drink. I had a Ploughman's plate...More

Stopped in here about 1pm on a Saturday for Lunch. Not very busy, was seated in a booth right away. Lots of great looking items, albeit a bit pricey, but that's the norm now I guess. Ended up going with some breakfast/brunch items. I had...More
