We came in just for drinks. The front area was full, but we found a counter to sit at in the back, then when people left we got a high top table for 4. They have a big table in the back that would be good for a group. The place is great looking - low lighting, wood, pubby decor. They have hooks on the walls for your coats/purses (vs under a table where you can't see it/might knock it down). Our server was pleasant and efficient, and they had a good beer selection.

I walked up to this pub I visit occasioally and peered into the window on the 20th of Feb and I didn't see anyone in the place. The door was open and I walked in to find the bartender sitting on the far side of the bar.

I took a seat and he came around to the workong side and asked what I needed. I asked about a particular draught and he basically stated what was written om thw tap. Then he disappeared.

I have been sitting here for 15 minutes and he has not returned behind the bar anywhere near where his sole cutomer sits. No small talk, no acknowledgement he has a guest.

I'm a bartender. I know some guests can be obnoxious or overly talkative. I am neither, but even if I was, if it's your only guest, you cultivate that person. Very disappointed

Had a great experience at this very atmospheric, old school Whiskey/Scotch Bar that reminded me of a trip to Scotland! Excellent Scotch selection, good value re: scotch prices (for NYC) and relative generous portions. Can't speak to the food, though enjoyed our curry french fries. We came here to drink and enjoyed it greatly.

The title says it all. For $3 a pop, you'd want an actual morsel of food.

Drinks were good though. Great atmosphere. The food was good, but come on. Let's up the portion-level please.

Came here on a recommendation and was not disappointed. Amazing selection of beer and a real atmosphere. Unfortunately only got to visit once while I was in the city but will definitely be coming back.
