This is a busy but bright and cheery pub. Typical beers with some good local craft beers on tap. Hoyne's Dark Matter and Blue Buck are two of the more popular local beers and both are featured. Burgers and fries are good, but the Mac&Cheese will make you think of mom and home.

Always has been and always will be a good place to stop in for a meal and a drink anytime great food, service, staff and clientele. Relaxing atmosphere and your able to hold a conversation without having to tell across the table at each other. Add this to your list next time your in town.

We were on a scenic drive and getting hungry when we saw the sign for this pub. As it was special wings night, the place was full. Efficient waitress and a speedy kitchen kept food moving out. Typical pub menu with burgers, wings, fries, etc. Good food - but do not order the French Onion soup!

It's the best pub in the neighbourhood; it's the only pub in the area. It has parking. Service is professional and quick. There are windows. They have Strongbow on tap. Those are all the plusses. The food--well we had pizza--was terrible. It looked good on the menu. Cold crust and a bizarre collection of toppings that had been thrown together.... More

Decent food at a decent price. A good assortment of food and drinks. Nothing exceptional but nothing bad either.
