It is nice pub with tasty European food. Excellent Japanese beer. The staff knows English very well and the service is on very high level. It’s no smoking pub.

Lots of locals using this place. Has some craft local beers and serves either snack food or full plates. Spent a few hours here and had a good meal and tried some of their beers.

Would agree with the last review. Go to Main Bar Coat behind the pub ( you need to walk around the block). Most amazing high end bar I've ever been to. The owner certainly knows his whiskies. Had the most amazing Japanese whisky tasting and...More
