Thanks to jwc215 for the pub crowl in NYC. This was the first pub we visited and was revisited by us two more times after.
It is really nice pretty quiet pub in Midtown of Manhattan. Pretty large dark area, tables are spread out nicely. It does have the vibe, i would come back again. Staff is extremely knowlegable, we were served by 3 different waitresses and all of them were extremely helpful and really knew their stuff. Selection is unbelievable, the have two or three cask beers every day plus about 40 taps. Really good stuff there like Southampton Double white or smuttynose pale ale. Whatever you're in the mood for. They update their beer menu daily. I think it speaks for itself.
We finally tryed the food on the third visit, it was allright but not great. Selection is pretty pour also - couple sandwiches and hotdogs. that's pretty much it. The food is probably the only weak side of this place.
I'd love to come back. (932 characters)

Since discovering this place in 2013, every time I am in New York City I stop in. Great atmosphere and layout of the place. Beer list is impressive and prices are reasonable for the city. The food is good; also $3 for a soft pretzel of the size and quality is a very good value if you're looking for something inexpensive to munch on. Absolutely worth your time to stop in. (373 characters)
