Pub food is pretty much the same in most successful pubs. My friend and I decided to "go UK" and ordered Shepard's pie and traditional beef stew. Both were excellent. The addition of a bit of cheese on the mash potato "icing" on the pie was a great add on.
Service was good. Much quieter in the dreary rainy season than it is in the summer.

After a couple hour visit to the arboretum we were both thirsty and hungry. Since I had my little dog and the weather was warm we sat on their very large patio. Beers were ample and one of us had a chicken club sandwich . . .freshly cooked chicken, avocado, lettuce, tomato, mayo -- traditional. This very large sandwich came with piping hot fries. While this was the only food we had, if other offerings were comparable,the quality of the food is good. The service was very attentive and helpful. When we walked inside we observed all the soccer jurseys hanging from the ceiling. The "guys" would relate well to that, but many would find hanging clothing less than inspirational. But sitting outside and having a hearty sandwich, it was perfectly fine!

This pub located a block off the water in Madison Park is a staple for this area. I found it to be nothing special,but nothing bad. Service was fine, speed of food was fine And the food itself was fine. I had the fish and chips which I might have over expected excellence here but it was average. I'll give the place another try at some point.

The Monday "All day happy hour" is the best deal in town. the drinks are $$ off and all the appetizers are $5.00. We had 2 rounds of drinks and 8-10 appetizers for less than $75. for 4 of us. All the app's are both very tasty and very generous in size. There is outdoor seating with a great view for the sunny summer days.
