Visited for an early dinner and a beer. Both were simple, tasty and reasonably priced. Good mix of locals and tourists. Wish I could have stayed later for the live music. Next time.

Wife and I stopped in for an after dinner whiskey. Got into a great discussion with the barman about different whiskeys and ended up tasting quite a few. Place has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Worth a visit.
