Famous for thier pork chops, which are excellent. Only wish the service was half as good. Sat at the bar, and the bartenders (all three) never made eye contact or even seemed to care if we needed anything. Just horrible service.

Lively pub with impeccable service and tasty food. Don't let the crowd intimidate you. All the menu items are made to order. The vegetable plate is always a work of art.

The Ale house has added soups to its menu and they are delicious! The hamburger is delicious and the fried eggplant and fried pickles are quite good. Their fish and chips is a real meal, and their desserts are very good and often homemade.

We were in town on vacation so my husband was interested in the micro brews. This place had a nice selection. And the food was good pub fare too.
