This was my third visit, and it has been a treat every time. We first tried it when I had some friends coming from DC who wanted "real pub food." And it was! Fish and Chips, Bangers and Champ, Shepherd's Pie - all were excellent. My friends rated the food, service and atmosphere as being as good as any of the best Irish pubs they've been to on the East Coast. It can be crowded and noisy on busy nights, but that's part of the charm.
