Looking for a good meal? Try some of the tasty dishes served in this snug pub housed in a heritage building (1889) in the heart of Amherst's Victorian streetscape

This is a funny story...we were staying at the Apothic Inn and the host had warned us to make reservations, so we did. When we get close to the restaurant it didn't look busy at all...parking was empty, no one parked on the streets! Very...More
