Seven of us arrived for lunch on a Wednesday. Tried the burgers, tuna salad, Mediterranean salad. All good. I'm not a beer drinker but everyone says it's good and they have a small brewery on site. Enjoyed everything except finding parking. There's lots of shops...More

We arrived an hour and 1/2 before closing. We were seated quickly and were asked to order our food and drinks right away because the kitchen and I guess bar too was closing. The mac and cheese was yummy, the sausage was very very good,...More

Stopped here for a beer and a snack (actually my husband was looking for a toilet) glad we stayed. The duck fat pretzel bits are ridiculous! Pair them with a Red Trolly Ale or if they have the Yada Yada Yada.

Good fish 'n chips are actually hard to find so I am thrilled to write that my order of fish was among the best I've ever had. No big fat breading to clog the throat, the fish tasted fresh enough to swim across the plate...More

If you like beer, this is the place for you. If you are looking for a good selection of food for dinner, it is not. The menu was limited and lacking in simple pub fair. What we ordered was ok, but I wouldn't go out...More
