We had a great lunch at this pub. It is dark inside and clearly intended to be a pub, but the sandwiches we got for lunch were excellent, and the service was top notch.

Is the seafood fresh and local or frozen?

They use fresh, local seafood. And it's typically great. Regarding the shrimp, they are without a doubt frozen because the only native shrimp in these waters are tiny, and only available during late Fall and Winter.

Do we have to get the Sunday Brunch or Can we order a single lunch dish from the menu?

Response from Aoxomox | Reviewed this property |
I believe that they are pretty open about that. I'm sure they'd be ok with it, but to make sure, I'd phone them.
