We dropped in to the Trough thinking it was a biker style pub. What a surprise. A number of seniors all enjoying an evening meal and drink while enjoying some local wester live music. The food was good pub food and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

Noisy crowd watching football. 60 min to get food, but it was good. Average price $8 to $9. Lots of beer flowing.
