My husband and I were planning on coming here for after dinner drinks, but ended up going for dinner. I got the steak and he got the steak sandwich, service was fast and super friendly, and the portions were good size! Food came out pretty fast.The steak and steak sandwich were both good, just a little under seasoned (personal preference). My steak was also a bit overcooked for my taste even though I asked for medium rare. The atmosphere is wonderful and the outdoor beer garden is really cute and super fun vibes. They did have live music too, which was fun! The only down side was it gets pretty crowded with a younger crowd. Food was better than expected and service remained friendly when it got super packed. The bathrooms remained pretty clean which was nice to see too.

Decent pub and grub. Great spot for watching sport also, the beer garden out back is ideal on a sunny day, plenty of seating and screens. Guinness not great through, the only downside. Worth a visit if looking for some decent pub grub
