This place has a terrific vibe to it and seems to have excellent drinks. If that’s what you’re looking for it’s worth it. Unfortunately my husband and I just wanted good...we don’t drink alcohol. The food was interesting but better in theory than execution. The Seafood Chowder had only fish and lots of (too) crunchy vegetables, no shellfish of any kind. The baked Brie appetizer was pretty good, the broccolini was cooked perfectly but then too heavily salted/seasoned. The Poutine was a disaster with lukewarm soggy fries, peppery gravy overpowering any other flavor especially the tasteless cheese curds. Maybe a stiff drink would have helped!

Asked to be seated at upstairs bar.
We got to be served by some of the most informative and friendly bartenders imaginable. Ben explained the choices and let us sample what we thought we would like. Had a great beer aged in gin barrels.
Food was good, beer hummus and wings,
Service was better.

Visited briefly for a gin and tonic and returned a few days later for lunch. Service was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. I would recommend making a booking if possible as we couldn’t get in for an evening dinner, even in late September.

We didn’t eat but did spend a few hours sitting at the upstairs bar enjoying the beers and well made cocktails. The staff were friendly without being overbearing and were knowledgeable about the beers and made great cocktails. The staff were mostly English which of course is a massive plus point.
