Went in on New Year's Day and they had a really great brunch menu. The star of the day was the Oyster Shooter. A fresh oyster served with cocktail sauce and a shot of Tito's Vodka. Yummy!

Stopped in after shopping on Newbury for an early dinner. The restaurant wasn't open yet, so we ate in the bar. Delicious oysters and a good selection of wood-fired pizza. Friendly staff, and a lively bar.

Friendly staff. I had a nice Bad Martha ale and the pork sandwich, which was delicious. If I could improve the pork sandwich, I would suggest a little green leafy vegetable to balance out the carbs, but mostly it was just delicious.
