We were starving after a day of biking around the island. Great, fresh pub food and a friendly staff. I had their house made veggie burger and it was delicious! My husband enjoyed his local burger. Clean and tidy bar/restaurant. We would return.

I doubt you will get much bad here as the local burger was fantastic with fresh bacon, great thin cut FF but the cast iron Mac and Cheese with Pulled Pork was simply fantastic! Lots of food that the left overs were almost as good.
