The atmosphere is great here, it is an old barn renovated to the restaurant. Food was ok, nothing outstanding, but the staff and atmosphere make up for it. Call ahead because they close for private functions.

We went here with friends, thinking it was just another pub. Our expectations were low. We were wrong! The food was really good. The drinks were delicious and the service friendly. I'd go again any time.

our group was staying there, and we were so supprised, the food was amazing, everyone enjoyed the food and service, the bar is very small so our group kind of took over the upstairs, but it was all good.

The place was recommended to us. And so glad we had dinner there. The atmosphere is an old barn. We ate up stairs in the loft looking out over the field. Pretty tea lights throughout the barn, the fire place and hanging moose head makes...More
