Visited in March 2017 (and twice again in April) each visit was great, quick service, friendly staff and locals and a quality pint. It's got a warm, welcoming interior and never too busy to get a drink. I will absolutely be back again.

Good beers, great servers. Live music & lots of friendly folks. The mens room even had a buttler that gave you soap, handed you a towel and put some perfume on your neck! Amazing stuff.
