The holiday lights that decorated the barn are beautiful, and we enjoyed an evening with perfect dinner music. Thanks for adding some sparkle to our new years weekend!

Good, but busy and loud, pub at the foot of Black Mountain ski resort. Excellent, friendly and fast service and good prices. Get there early, as the place is very popular and fills up fast. Good live music as well.

The atmosphere is great here, it is an old barn renovated to the restaurant. Food was ok, nothing outstanding, but the staff and atmosphere make up for it. Call ahead because they close for private functions.

We went here with friends, thinking it was just another pub. Our expectations were low. We were wrong! The food was really good. The drinks were delicious and the service friendly. I'd go again any time.

our group was staying there, and we were so supprised, the food was amazing, everyone enjoyed the food and service, the bar is very small so our group kind of took over the upstairs, but it was all good.
