Classic pub atmosphere in downtown Worcester near the Palladium and Courthouse. Great variety of beer on tap. Better than average pub food menu. Excellent heirloom tomato salad; flatbreads are good but, for my taste, not particularly remarkable. Good service and friendly patrons.

not per se but a lot of it is gluten free and they cook so much to order I am SURE if you told them you would like gluten free they would help you. I was very impressed by food and service attitudes
