Food is pretty good. You order at the bar and they bring the food to the table. I had the snack platter and friends had fish and chips. A tasting board of 5 different beers was nice. Reasonable for the area.More

Typical british pub atmosphere, tongue in cheek, usual expectation of pub grub, seats at the bar along with tables for groups. A pleasant way to have an inexpensive (for Switzerland) drink & meal
