I had heard good things about this eatery and it did not disappoint. It is small in size, but big in atmosphere and food. We had seven for dinner and the variety was perfect for every taste. A good value and delicious food.

Looking for a local lunch spot we found this one. Good beer selection. Fish and chips were really good. Plump fish pieces and shoestring fries were well prepared and served with sides of coleslaw and tartar sauce. Casual atmosphere has lots of memorabilia to review..

Unless they have a secret room I do not know about, there would be no way to handle a group that large.
