I went there solo for a cheap $10 lunch, they were out of what I originally ordered. So the waitress let me order a dearer meal for $10. If was a very BIG Hamburger, so if you are a BIG eater? This is the pub for you.

the food is generally good quality. service is good , not a great amount of variety on the menu and it is a little bit pricey for select items. the restaurant area around the bar is dark and dingy and could do with a freshen up.
