We were there in Feb 2018 and liked the poub. We sat right near the Bar. It was a lively pub. Good service with lots of local beers on tap to choose from. We had some nachos which were okay.

Stopped in for dinner, as I looked in and in was busy. I ordered the fish and chips which were at the table very quickly. The fish was an ample portion with no oily taste at all. Good foood for a bar setting.
