“Better now they moved out of the basement”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

It is one of the best places for fine local beers. They brew on site, and have a wide range of beers, bitter, ales, stouts. I'm happier taking friends in to the place now they have improved the bar upstairs rather than using the basement where it was a bit of a 'drinking den' (friendly all the same). Join the mug club and get discounted growlers.

“Trivia was fun”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

Friendly and cute bartenders. Beer and pretzels were really good. Nothing special about the pizza. Thought there might be a live band but it was trivia night. Good fun!
