My boyfriend and I went here for lunch on Friday and had an excellent time. Draught selection was great, service was good even though he was literally covering the bar and restaurant alone. We had a burger and panini-both were very good. Will definitely be back if we’re in the area!

We could have easily given this Pub a higher mark based on our visit on October 10, 2017. That rating would be based on the first bar tender we had, as he was polite, outgoing and he truly appeared to care for his customers /guests. (Sorry we did not get either names) The good guy we will call him, was a bigger fellow with a tattoo down his right arm. Just was a genuine good guy and was happy to serve us. It was clear we were not locals, but he treated us as such. However, as we cashed up with him and he was on his way around 4 pm, the next bartender / server had a clearly different attitude and approach with us. He was all chatty chatty with a nice local couple at the opposite end of the bar. However, when it came to us he never interacted, except for a few looks like we may have been a bother just being there. He did look up when we left, but most likely to make sure we kept going? If this employee is on duty next time we come visit our niece at Gould, we will most likely head a few miles out of town to the local Brew Pub. It was too bad a good experience turned so poorly, showing one man can make a difference. Perhaps he should get a job someplace where he is happier.

Great basement bar where you will meet the locals who come for a game and talk. Excellent selection of beers. Just drank but food looked good. I hope you meet the bar tend who has a BA and MA in literature for a erudite discussion of the towns history, politics, Stephen King’s Maine influences and the state of sports. She discussed and flowed between serving and discussions. Entertaining evening.

We had pizza and it was very good; although I was somewhat disappointed because it was so highly recommended.

Friday night, place us crowded....but it is worth it. Great place to meet new people, strike up a conversation and enjoy some good food. We chose the large veggie pizza, cooked a little crispy, and it was great! Reasonably priced, great atmosphere, good music....good time - consistently!
