A nice assortment of beer, limited cider, and a parsimonious whiskey selection. They offer an online ordering system from one’s table wherein one canna order a whiskey without an obnoxious mix. Yuck! The bar service was provided by a young man who was uninformed, uninterested,...More

Dined here last night and found the fresh fish and chips deal very good. It's a busy restaurant but there's a good atmosphere and service is good.
