The ideal time to eat here is a sunny day so that you can sit outsside. My dish is the Grillhaxe which is consistenly very good. Combine this with their beer test (4 of their brews), and you are guaranteed a good time.

We were ther with a group of 10 business persons on a very hot evening. Booking was lost. We were seated behind the entrance wall of the washing-up room. The whole evening we had the dusty smell of the trash cans with food rests.

I have heard through the grapevine that the food is average, the beers are good but the service is usually unfriendly. This is the impression many friends have. We only ordered 1 dish which was chicken wings and I was surprised at how big the...More
