What a great place. Although the wine served in the table glasses don't hold that against Else's. I followed the advice of another TA contributor and he was spot on. Great place and a must visit for lunch or dinner or just beers!

enter the place and enjoy the incredibly relax and welcoming atmosphere. You can feel liked home. The staff and owner is nice and welcoming. The choice of beer is great and the scotch menu is fantastic. I cannot spend a week without going there.
