Stopped by to quench my thirst and soak in the incredible views of the working bay. A great place to stop for a drink or bite to eat.

Highly unsatisfied with the food. It was costco fries, with meat thinner than my slice of cheese- Waitress was incredibly RUDE. Giving me sass.. purposely ignoring.. Atmosphere sucks- Id rather eat stale bread. I will not be returning again. Do NOT recommend this place !

The inside of this pub Is truly a classic pub with a lot of rough edges but the food it pretty good and the view is awesome - sit by the window or outside in the warmer months and you can’t go wrong!
