You won't be disappointed with the place. We ordered the smoked brisket which is very smokey but still delicious. You have to try a gin when you are here. I can recommend the Malfy gin.

A delightful array of Craft Gin cocktails to choose from - we tasted 4 different ones which beyond exceeded our expectations. Steaks were perfectly seared. Excellent and attentive service. We definitely be back soon.
