We enjoyed our lunch, Van had the Club and I had the Pea Soup with oyster to start. The service was very good and easy to have a conversation.

This was our last stop on our beer tour. I really appreciated the half pints, as it makes it easier to try different kinds of beers without over drinking. The food smelled delicious but it was so crowded that we didn’t stay for a meal....More
