I can't say enough good things about this little PUB!! They had 3 course meal for $24 dollars. We shared a dish the sea trout,the cheese, and apple pie with custard. The people were nice and you could ask questions and they knew the answer. Great Job guys!!

Loved it from the second we walked through the door. Think it is set over 5 or 6 levels. Very quirky. And then the service. All staff friendly and attentive. The food. To die for. And then the trad music started. Would recommend this place to anyone.
