We sat in the corner across from the fireplace. We tried two ciders which we mixed and ended up with a great cider. The Hilden Red Ale was amazing! Absolutely amazing! We really enjoyed the meal, and recommend it to others.

Centrally located and in the heart of it all. A great pub and food venue. Did not visit for what looks to be a great music late scene. Was perfect to sit and have a pint while friends wandered about and window shopped.
