We arrived, found our table and settled in. Server was prompt with menus and drink order. Took a little while for her to get back, but the place was busy due to Downtown Shopping Party. This is where things took a bit of turn. Good...More

It's a great place to meet up with friends for drinks and a meal. It is a little loud if they have a band performing.

The food was pretty good but I guess our party went in a little later to eat and it was so noisy that we couldn't hear one another talk.

Good pub grub and a limited selection of local beers with charming service and live music too. There used to be a patio but construction has forced it indoors.

Questions & Answers
Why would you take a 12 year old girl to a PUB? The fact remains that their profit margin likely comes from the sale of booze. You only need to enter the place to realize it is no place for a child. That is on you! Any foul language she heard was as a result of your parenting choice to have her in an adult setting. I would bet money that she was likely the ONLY child in there. That does not however excuse poor service & under cooked food & hygiene practice's you speak of. If you are that sensitive about the location of the bathroom facilities, I suggest you scope out a place before you get a table. Save yourself the grief. There are doors on those bathrooms!I have been in the ladies a couple of times & I am extremely picky. It was very clean. You only mentioned bad things though. Are you sure you were not having an off day? I would no sooner spend over 20 minutes waiting for a server(s) that are spitting distance away. The place is not that big. Your child had to be starving at this point & definitely getting a sour stomach soaking up your increasing tensions. Your table must have been a joy. I hope you learned things from your experience so you can avoid such an unpleasant one in the future.
