If you're not a beer drinker, try fruit cider from Britain or Canada or spend $16.00 to experience mead, an ancient British drink made of fermented honey water.
To nibble on with your beverage, they sell their own variety of snack mix, made with cayenne pepper and fair warning - it's very spicey! The menu includes such pub favourites as chicken wings, Caesar salad, potato wedges, soups, salads, sandwiches and great, and deep dish pizza. If you're fortunate enough to be here on the second or last Friday or Saturday of the month, there are also oyster specials.
On our last visit, we had cream of jalapeno soup, served with focaccia bread. The soup was delicious with just the right amount of heat to warm but not burn the taste buds. The vegetarian pizza was covered with artichokes, peppers, onions, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes and needed a fork and knife to eat.
You place your order at the bar and it is delivered to your table by very friendly and efficient staff. Most menu items are under $7.00.
Unlike many pubs, smoking is not allowed at all, which is nice for us non- smokers.
Open from 3 p.m. Sunday through Friday and from 1 p.m. on Saturday. Closed on most major holidays.
