Our family decided to try this pub. The food and device were good, but the trivia taking place was annoying since it interfered with our conversations. Would suggest to have trivia during the week only.

The food is good, unfortunately the entertainment lead guitar James wants all the attention and has his amp way too high.

The meal and atmosphere were good. Washrooms very clean. Staff very attentive. The local mushroom dip with pretzel bites was too die for.
