Great burgers and pub food, good beer selection, clean, friendly and professional wait staff. I was there with a wine drinker and they only had 1 wine. So, four stars if you're looking for wine.

comfy bar with good selection of beer. A no nonsense attitude which is cool but also a bit ridiculous. "We don't serve martinis" ?!
