While nothing on the menu is particularly fancy, everything that we had was good and the service was excellent. I would recommend looking at the evenings specials. I hade shepards pie for $15 which came with my choice of beer or wine. A great deal!

Wanted to drink a good beer and found this venue serving Guinness. Good. During our stay we met a couple of interesting people. Perfect day.

I need not say more. I pulled up a stool, grabbed a pint of Guinness and some bangers and mash. It's exactly what it advertises. Great history, friendly staff.
