There is always a crowd at this neighborhood spot. Good, basic pub food and craft beer. I went on recommendation of the meat pie which didn't disappoint. The vibe wasn't particularly attractive to me. Most people are wandering around, figuring out what table to pack...More

Imagine a jet lagged visitor from london needing refreshment immediately after a long flight. By accident found this great bar and cafe which served me the tastiest bulgar chicken salad with great lager. Recommended. Feeling particularly powerful and glorious now

What a lovely little eatery/coffee shop this is. We love the friendly vibe, and simple yet good food! It doubles up as a great bar at night serving all the trendy local craft beer. Delightful

Great bar, great food and great people customers and staff. Even though we were slightly older than the average customer we were made to feel very welcome over the 5 days we visited. Favourite place for breakfast and a drink in the evening .
