Hey look, another mediocre Irish pub. Oh wait, itís British. But itís just as boring when it comes to the beer selection. Guinnesss, Bass, Newcastle, Harp, the usuals. Then thereís Union Jack. Iíll take that one please. The upside is that it was busy and can actually be a fun place to hang out if you can drink British macros. Itís on a hill and very visible with the British flag flying out front. Inside is your typical wooden decor surrounding an L-shaped bar serving about a dozen taps. I certainly wouldnít go out of my way for this as a beer destination but if you live down the street and want to grab a Union Jack (which wasnít overly fresh but wasnít bad) it could be a decent place to hang out and play trivia.

Great place to take visitors who want to go to a fun place while in town Standard beer selection. Pub food is pretty good. Good soccer TVs. Nothing special, but a fun place.

Typical english pub, standard beers youíd fine anywhere. Fish and chips. Not a horrible place but not somewhere I hit regularly. I seem to be drawn to the shepards pie.
Eh, take it or leave it.

This place is decent but not a spot for a beer geek. Good food, good atmosphere etc.. but not a place to seek out if your looking for rarities.

I visited there in the mid Ď90s to watch Premiership Soccer, consume authentic British food and beer with friends. Cool place with limited draft selection. It was limited but quite good.

Great food. Loved the fish and chips. They only had few beers on tap, and nothing too exciting. Friday night quizzes are a blast.

Great breakfasts, and I love their Shepherdís Pie. Beer selection is average; they have most of the major English / Irish brews. It would be nice to have a rare beer come through once a month. This place does go off for Premier League games.
