We went on Valentine's Day for dinner and it was all we had hoped for and them some. Greeted with a smile at the door. Seated immediately with to our table.

All you can eat Fish n Chips and fabulous drinks. They were able to accommodate a group of 8 people on a Saturday evening without much notice, but the place was full.

If you want a small place with a nice room where you can walk downstairs to a little bar where you can order a very fine meal and whatever you want to drink, this is your spot. After long drive or a day on the slopes you can crash here and not have to drive on the cold to find... More

English pub with excellent selection of food and beer, friendly and welcoming service - what else three men may need to relax, enjoy the meal and have a conversation. That was just perfect!

The English pub atmosphere and service here are great. Dark wood beams and an international mix of beers on draught and bottled plus a full bar add to the charm. We started with the seasonal special Carmel Apple cider martini, a speciality created by the woman at the bar. Not too sweet and very easy to drink. Had the fish... More

An English pub in Maine? Well, why not? I started with the local Allagash stout, which was very smooth and tasted great with the their Wellie - a beef Wellington. It was a healthy portion and was good -though not as good as others I've had; the meat wasn't as tender. Husband had the fish sandwich because it was a... More

This place is under new ownership as of January 2016. The same cook works here as before, so the food is still delicious. A mix of English, Indian, and American food.

This restaurant offered a delicious meal and excellent service. The food was gourmet with a touch of homemade cooking. We shared the Drayman Steak and Greek salad, both of which were very tasty. Our server was very helpful to offer tips around the area. I would definetely return because of their quality of food and great service.

I ordered Balsamic chicken with rice. The Chicken was overdone and stringy so I sent it back. Next chicken plate came out under done and had so much balsamic vinegar on it that I could not taste the chicken or rice. My wife ordered the Bangers and Mac which is macaroni and cheese with sausage. She liked the Mac and... More
