Great location, very large setting, a fun place to visit. Food is good but the key selling feature is it’s local beer selection. It’s a great place to hang out with friends, worth checking out if you like a pub setting.

Friendly staff, excellent, excellent fish and chips. The Garrick's Head Ale is worth a go. If you can nab a seat by the fire on a rainy evening, you've got the best seat in the house. I highly recommend it here.

Surprisingly good food with nice selection of local draft beers. Shepard's pie was unique and tasty - ingredients in chicken wrap very fresh and flavorful. Tables with nice view of Bastion Square street to comfortably watch the worikd go by.
