Never in my life have I gotten up and left a restaurant due to service but that is exactly what happened last night at the bent elbow. Upon arrival with a group of 12 we were immediately told we can't push tables together. So we...More

We were there on a busy Sat night. We tried a few different beers, They were very good. My pork schnitzel was over cooked and dry, and my husband said his curry had no flavour. Too bad, but we liked the cute waiter.

I always try to stop in when I'm in the area. The beer selection is phenomenal and the food is great. Larger groups might have trouble getting in if the place is busy. I highly recommend coming here if you love beer.

The beer selection if fantastic and changes frequently. Lee was very knowledgeable about all the beers. The food was good some menu items unusual. Service great. While it doesn't look much from outside it was very busy and had a great vibe

My first visit was a positive experience. I have driven by this place many, many times and finally decided to give it a try. I heard it featured a multitude of craft beers and before we sat down we were given a small binder with...More

Title says it all. Some 30+ taps and a huge variety. I loved the maple syrup beers and a dark mild (unknown in the us and hard to find even in uk these days.) Food is standard pub food - fine but not why one...More
