We visited the place on a quiet weekend for a quick lunch before going for a hike, had to wait for 20 minutes for a fun-size portion of soup. Unfortunately I can't recommend this place. At least it was tasty..

Hi. So sorry you experienced a small bowl of soup..can't comment on why that would have happened..only wish you had brought it to a staff members attention as would have been no trouble to top up. Take Care.

Called for drinks on a Saturday night. Fairly quiet but nice atmosphere. Good choice of beers and a really really good female vocalist. Had a great night.
