Had lunch here with three friends for Xmas. Service was fab.waitress was helpful, friendly and sweet. Food was plentiful and fresh and affordable. Only complaint is that it was dark and noisy but then it's a pub.

Thank you for the positive review. We are sometimes a noisy little spot, but we prefer to think of ourselves as more cozy than dark ;). We hope it won't dissuade you from visiting us again!

We do! If you check out our menu online you'll see items that are labelled "GF" which are gluten free and "GFO" which are easily modifyable to be made gluten free. Cheers, Mike
