I've heard this place described as a Scottish pub, and English pub and probably an Irish pub. It is a dark would haven of beers from these three countries. Only a handful of bottles touched on Germany or other lands.

Our beer was good. Our food was fair-to-midland, at best. My wife had a β€œhair-raising” concern about her steak and Guinness pie, which was also a little doughy. This was compounded by the cook’s antics over by the bar. He was variously arranging his pony tail, scratching his rear end and playing with his Praying Mantis.

He returned to the kitchen with his Mantis cage in tow, but I worried not, as surely they have one of those signs posted reminding him to wash his hands before returning to work. In contrast, our bartender/waiter was friendly and clean.

This is a good place to hit for the beer and pub atmosphere, but probably not for the food.
