Weekend dinner and drinks with friends and coworkers. Friendly service, good selection on the menu, and many great beer choices! Not too loud. Mixed crowd and fun times. Washrooms are large and clean.

A nice atmosphere inside. Drinks reasonably priced with a wide variety on tap and plenty of liqueurs and spirits to appease anyone who loves mixed drinks and cocktails. They serve food as well. Live music most nights of the week.

Came across this place while planning to go elsewhere and just let me say what a find. The fish and chips was amazing and the service was top notch. Amazing bar staff that seem to really care. Will definitely return. Good prices for good food.
