Had a fantastic meal on Tuesday night. We were very lucky to get a table beside the fire and a great singer playing acoustic classics on the guitar. The food was high quality and the girls on the floor were very pleasant and quick to serve. This will not be our last visit that's for sure

We got the place next to the fire and it was really nice. Waiters were lovely. We've tasted their local beers and the food was great. Like usually we had more than enough in our plates and for a reasonable price.

Had lunch here Easter Saturday with the family and while they were busy the service was very good. Seafood chowder was excellent. If you are up this way definitely pop in. Good food, nice pub and great service.
