Don't try coming with more than 4 people when it's busy. There is no waiting list just open seating, so good luck. If you get a seat, this place has the best burgers, fries, and beer in Claremont.

Very nice outdoor seating, good food, very good choice of beers and wine. We had the fries which were delicious, and the cheese plate. Several beers, if your not sure what you like they will give you a sample.

Great pub for food and drink. All European flavors! Enjoy indoor or outdoor seating. The burgers are cooked to perfection. It is located in the center of a bustling college town.
