The downtown location is lively, lots of people coming and going. The wrap around glassed veranda is a great place to watch people and enjoy the weather. Good food, with quick friendly service. A pleasant dining experience. I recommend this place very much.

Good selection of local beer, fairly standard pub menu, but with very fair prices for really good quality food. Friendly and helpful staff, very pleasant setting, particularly out in the glassed-in patio.
