The Cloverdale Amber Ale was excellent and so was the Henhouse Pilsner. The bartender serving me was efficient and friendly. And the fish and chips were very good. All at a reasonable price. I liked this joint and I would go back.

After reading reviews here on tripadvisor we hoped to get to a decent place in Cloverdale for our dinner. I ordered a beer from their own brewery that was supposed to be their signature beer. A amber ale that just didn't do it. It wasn't...More
