Solid enough pub. I've experienced better- we had to sit downstairs and the bar wasn't open, so we had no pub atmosphere, felt like we were just in a basement. We ordered some food (at the upstairs bar) and I had to carry both drinks, my set of cutlery, as well as the menu back down all my myself.

I had lunch upstairs at this unusually-named spot, which has been around for about eight years.
