    We really enjoyed it.

    The menu is based on traditional British pub food (but done well), so keep that in mind. Make sure you ask for all of the available menus. There is a "Toast" menu with smaller snacks on it. We enjoyed the Scotch eggs, potted shrimp, chicken liver and foie, fish and chips, bangers and mash, and the lamb roast with Yorkshire puddings. The steak and kidney pie was a hit with the British expats at our table. As far as desserts, we loved the milk chocolate tart with sea salt and the banoffee pie.

    There was a great beer selection and some nice cocktails (La Vie en Rose was yummy).

    The space is T-shaped with the bar in the front, a communal table next to a garden in the middle, and a wider, dimly-lit seating area in the back. Each bathroom had its own personality, so have some beer and check them out.

          Agreed- also a great (though pricey) dry-aged burger.
