Great Sunday afternoon trivia session. Highly recommend the food and atmosphere. The open fires are a nice touch on a cold winter afternoon. Study up and go along!

Excellent service, great food and atmosphere! A lovely place to catch up with family and friends. We had a private room for our party of 15 and everything ran smoothly.
