We went here on a Thursday night with another couple. We split a side salad and Banger and Mash. All was very good. It was a little loud. They allowed us to move to the very back room so that we could talk.

I enjoyed my visit to this establishment. It's somewhat small but has plenty of city. Parking is limited sense it is downtown. There are several beers on tap to choose from. The steak wrap with the house fries was amazing. Id definitely go back
