Always have enjoyed this place. Itís been under new management since late 06 and itís very tidily run these days. Very friendly and capable front of the house staff and a solid kitchen for pub grub (pizza, burgers, nachos). They do a great job of picking up interesting locals, including the occasional one-offs. They really connect to the beer community, putting up lots of casks of Washington beers (always two casks on the first Tuesday of each month).
