My burger smelled like fish. Not the place to go for a clean meal. Really nice wait staff, though. Get a new cook.

This has become a regular favorite of mine, the food is consistent and well presented. The staff are friendly, always remember you and are more than knowledgable about the menu, both food and drink.

Servers are good, and food is good pub stuff with some surprising salads. Don't expect fine dinning, but enjoy a casual good time.

I like to drop in occasionally solo with my laptop, have a coffee and Caesar salad while I do my email etc. The Caesar is great: plenty of it, not too much dressing, includes shavings of parmesan, lots of bacon, and garlic bread.
