Just across the state line on the CA side and within walking distance from the casinos is the Taphouse. On a fine day it would be fun to sit outside around one of the fire pit tables but that was not the case on the blustery day we headed in here for dinner.
The bar area, with stage for live music (not while we were there) was fairly busy and so we chose the dining room.
We had excellent service and the staff was knowledgeable about the good range of beers, I ended up with a local brew - Mr Toads Wild Rye.
Hubby fancied some nachos for starters but our server indicated that it was a huge portion and that we may want to re-think considering what we were ordering for the main course. We therefore opted for the baked brie which was a good choice (and a good size too) and came with apples, grapes, almonds and drizzled with honey.
With fish and chips on the menu what else could I possibly order? Well I was tempted by some of the salads. Hubby opted for the Mulligan stew in its own edible sourdough bowl. He was impressed and said it was almost as good as what he makes - high praise indeed. My fish batter was a little over done but not a total disaster, The chips were great, more along the line of "proper" British chips and not the shoestrings you sometimes get.
Dinner came fairly quickly, before we'd finished off the brie, I believe someone else had mentioned that so you may ask them to hold off a while. I'm sure that dessert was offered but we were pretty stuffed by then.
Lots of pub grub choices on the menu, Shepherds Pie, Bangers & Mash, Chili and pizza. Reasonably priced. We would be happy to eat there again.
