Met with some business associates here. I had the cottage pie. Serving size did not disappoint. Oh and it came with a side of steamed veggies. Worth every penny spent.

Ordered Hamburger with goat cheese & compost (yummy!]. My friend had blackened chicken salad, also very good. Excellent service (Omar). Good pub. We had planned to eat at Wild Wings, but when we walked in we immediately noticed how dirty it was (8 unbussed tables.) I would go again.

Stopped in after a day of touring for some excellent fish and chips, corned beef and cabbage and cottage pie. Wonderful food and great drink/beer variety. Moderate cost and charming setting.
