Stopped in for lunch and would say the food is average pub food. Good value for the money. There was some arguing among some staff that I didn't need to hear.

This is just a typical old pub.. Was really expecting more based on tripadvisors ratings. Dark, old, average pub grub, service was lacking. Looks like they have their local crowd and don't care to build on it.

My husband had the beef dip which he rated as good. I had the Club sandwich. Possibly the worst I have ever eaten. Far to thick and poorly assembled.

We chose to eat in the pub rather than the restaurant and that was probably a mistake. The food and the service were fine but the atmosphere was poor. A lot of bad language was being used by other patrons and that negatively impacted our...More

We did enjoy our lunch at the pub, once we got it. Something went wrong though with others arriving after us receiving their lunch before ours. It was quite busy when we arrived. But our lunch was worth the wait. Halibut tacos, very nice, could...More
