Had a nice group experience. We had a group breakfast and a group lunch. I would have preferred to order off the menu. However, we had several selections. Next time, I would just like to eat in the tavern.

Got a table at the last second due to a cancellation. Staff were friendly and gave a brief history of the house. We ate in the old library. Food was very good.

This restaurant is interesting. The interior has a number of different levels. If you are going down into the bar you need to be able to negotiate stairs. If you come in off the street you will be able to move into the main restaurant...More
