They had a nice selection of wines by the glass and they had a good happy hour menu. We ate in the pub, not the restaurant. Food was very good and the atmosphere is that of a high-end pub. I would absolutely go back.

No idea about management, just know that it is well run now and the entire staff was very polite, helpful and menu knowledgeable, plus the food was excellent.
