Twas a cold night, when we did spy a bar. We stopped by for a hot cider, and boy was it above par. Would return anytime, I try not to be lame, but somehow it still ends up in a rhyme

The Willie Smith hot cider is definitely worth a try, for me it is like drinking hot apple pie! Thank you for your review ;-)

Expensive food for the quality provided. Lacks a better service as well. Plates took long time to be prepared on a empty night.
