We were here in October 2015 and were impressed. Not so much this time. The fish and chips were mediocre. There was an electrical problem and we ate basically in the dark. Other diners were using their cell phone flashlights to read the menu. We...More

Evans food is pub food at its best. The service is very good as well as the atmosphere. The sweet potato fries, burgers, and chicken sandwiches are delicious.

Good range of beer but rather too cold for my English taste. Varied menu of " US pub food" Not fine dining but a good place for a sociable night out and a few beers. Friendly staff, lively atmosphere. Cheers!
