Spent a while deciding on a craft beer only to find neither of our choices was available. Disappointing. Nice atmosphere and ordered hot chips for the kids which were really good. Cooked well and a nice bowl full.

Went with a friend for lunch here. I had fish and chips and she had a chicken sandwich, both of which were pretty good and the portions hearty. We didn’t try any of the beers, but they had a pretty cool selection.

Husband and I went out for date night on Eat Street. As we waited for dinner booking at Atticus Finch, we dropped in here to enjoy some local brews. Great choice! Grab a flight and find some new ones you like!
