"This was a perfect place for a work lunch. Lots of space and delicious food. They have some of the best sweet potato fries I've ever had and the Guinness gravy is fantastic. My only criticism is that it is a bit on the expensive side for a pub located on a university campus."

"It was a pub lunch, but not worth the $20 dine out charge. Better to order off the main menu.
Food was adequate but not even warm...place was noisy and dark.
The servers did an amazing job...only two of them, and a team of 30 kids came in for lunch...
I should have known better...a pub.

"Upon arrival, hostess never told us they only had the late menu which was mainly just appetizers. She still gave us the regular menu. I was pretty disappointed as I was hoping to have an entree meal, if I had know this I would've had a drink and left but at that moment I had already ordered appys and drinks. It was not until I decided what entree I wanted that she said she was sorry and forgot to tell us ..."

"We had fish & chips and bangers & mash. The fish piece was a little small. If you have an appetite get two pieces. Bangers and mash were great and the vegetables were outstanding. Our waitress was very nice but she was run off her feet. She could have used some help."
