    Try their Seasonal Beers, the Cherry Wheat was by far my Favorite Beer on Tap!! The other Beers are decent and would have to say that their IPA needs some work. The Cream Soda & Root Beer was Great!!

    The Vanilla cream ale is beautiful! I also really like the black bean fritters. Burgers and main dishes are OK. Come here for flavorful beer and inventive appetizers.

    Great place for a night out with some great beer. Try something new from the house tap. Compliment it with the Brewer's Chips or Beer Cheese Soup.

    If you like sea food get calamari from the starters. So good!

    This place has great bangers and mash. But if you want to go to heaven when you die; order the Manchester United.

    Great pale ales here especially the loco double pale. Order their beer as a meal. The menu offers higher end bar food.

    Ask for the Vanilla Stout. They mix the cream ale with the stout. It's delicious.

    I like the food and beer here, but the onion rings are just not my style. They are thin cut, hardly battered, and too oily.

    Not a place to go I'd you want a friendly wait staff and welcoming atmosphere... They have neither. All employees look like they are miserable.
