Had a wonderful family meal here – this is my granddaughter's favourite place to eat out. Our server was outstanding, even when a full pint of beer got knocked over. Never gone wrong with a menu choice. Deep fried green beans are a must-try. Craft beer list is terrific.

Great place that always makes you feel welcome. It seems like a part of the neighborhood. I have come back here again and again...it's always a good experience. The food is so tasty and the atmosphere is welcoming. And if you want a beer there is a good selection. Always a winning choice.

My wife and I went here for dinner and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend reservations, as it is a small place and can get pretty busy. We got the cheese curds, which were the special appetizer for the day, as well as the pretzel bread, which is part of the everyday menu. The cheese curds were delicious! The... More

Very diverse menu. So many nice choices. Can't go wrong with Bangers and mash. The sausages where so tender and full of flavor while the gravy for the mashed potato was incredible. I had a nibble of my wife's bahn mei sandwich and it was delicious. Just enough zip to wake up the taste buds. Great beer and wine selection.... More

Came on a Wednesday as we thought it would be slower! Wrong! 75 minute wait BUT worth it. Banh Mi sandwich was fabulous. Just the right amount of zing.

Very interesting blend of standard fare & novel approaches to traditional cuisine. The wait staff is helpful & knowledgeable about their menu. Molly offered samples of the dark beer to help decide; loved local Delano dark stout with fish & chips (add vinegar too). Small space & a bit noisy; child friendly. BTW; bathrooms were very clean. Reservations suggested.

The restaurant bills itself as "British," but judging from the menu is transnational. There's nothing "British" about the Asian Hangover, the fried green beans or the chicken curry sandwich. Do try the braised ribs. You will not be disappointed.

Took the family to this Triple D spot and was not disappointed. Braised boneless beef rib was fork tender and unctious. Bourbon barrel aged stout brasing liquid used for gravy added a slight sweetness to it. Very creamy mashed potatoes underneath. And al dente green beans on the side. It's a small place so reservations are suggested. We had the... More

Order the bacon onion dip - super delicious. Admired the beer and wine selection and...what?...was that green curry on the menu. It was, and it was great! If you go on a Sunday, make sure to get there around 1pm. We've shown up at 2pm to closed doors..

Five of us visited this restaurant on a Friday evening. Would recommend calling ahead to get on waiting list as there is limited seating. The staff is friendly and very customer service oriented. When we arrived we still needed to wait for a few minutes and the staff person told us if we would like to go to shop next... More
