Food was okay, and service could be better; it was a friend's birthday and I thought the server could have been much more accommodating of this fact especially when it came to the birthday surprise/cake. We were a large group (12+, the exact number escapes...More

More than just the typical pub fare menu, with good food and attentive service. We had a reservation for a party of six, and they seated us right away. Located in Davis Square, so parking at peak times can be a challenge.

Love the appetizers and menu items I've had. They have cellared beer selections, as well as a long list on tap. Burger is easily top of the list in the area, and I've been out for quite a few different burger selections. Nice enough vegetarian...More

Hubby and I came out for dinner tonight and wanted to try Five Horse for the beer. But good grief the flatbread pizza was phenomenal. I had the French Kiss. It was so good. And a great beer selection!!

Maybe it's my fault and I'm simply unlucky... The first time I came here to eat there was such a terrible smell that I escaped without even asking for a table... the second time we got a table and it was not smelly anymore, but...More
