My wife and I had been traveling around the area doing both historical and genealogical stuff. We were staying at the Fairville Inn, so wanted a casual place for a simple dinner. This place fit the bill.

We each ordered a craft beer on tap. She ordered the Saturday special which was Chicken Roma and a crab cake. Hers came with a Caesar salad. I ordered the crab cakes platter and a Caesar salad. The food came out quickly. Our server was very attentive and checked up on us several times. The food was very good and it hit the spot for us. This was exactly what we were looking for.

Decent appetizers but that was about it.
Slow service despite it not being busy at all.
Chicken cutlet/park sandwich is terrible. It was cut up into thin slices which was not how it was described. All breading was off and mixed in with the heavily seasoned tomato sauce. Roll was falling apart from all the sauce and it was inedible. Burger looked ok but not cooked to ordered temperature.

I can't speak too much about the food as I only ordered the small house salad (which was very fresh) but ,the service was terrible . I went there for lunch with a group of 7 other people . There were maybe 5 other tables at the time . It took about an hour to get our food after ordering . One person got the wrong order but decided to keep it for fear of it taking too long to get it right . Our waiter was friendly and split the checks for us , but it was obvious there were not enough people working . Had anyone had to leave to get back to work they would have been out of luck ! Wpuld not recommend for a work lunch situation .

I met friends here for lunch recently. Lunch seems to be a very quiet time so we had no problem occupying a table for more than the usual amount of time. The waiter was pleasant and attentive. I had the crab cake sandwich with a side salad. Both were very good, in fact, the crab was exceptionally so. I would certainly return. It has a nice pub atmosphere and seems to be a good place to meet friends.
