We went here with friends, thinking it was just another pub. Our expectations were low. We were wrong! The food was really good. The drinks were delicious and the service friendly. I'd go again any time.

Great place at the base of attitash mountain. Great for friends to laugh and enjoy a good drink with good food. It's in a red barn and was also romantic. Worth the visit
