Marketed as an Old English style pub ... although not quite 100% authentic in their decore ... but certainly heading in the right direction. It's got a good vibe about it ...and it wasn't too noisy. We had a couple of wines, and a couple...More

Went there on a beautiful sunny October afternoon for happy hour. We had the house wines ($4.15) and some appetizers. We were all very happy with the food. Patio is small but quaint. The pub itself looked huge but very warm and welcoming.
