Good beer, decent food, some good Scotch and friendly people. What more cold you ask for? One thing would be for them to assign a style or description to the beers after they're finished. I had a Maibock that was nothing close to style. It was more like an IPA and I had to taste and smell deep beyond the hops to even notice that it was a lager. It was actually a really good beer, I was just prepared for something else due to the style descriptor.
The night I was here, I went to Town Hall first, it was a madhouse, it was quiet and calm here. I didn't care for the building or decore, but I can't really complain about anything either, because I had a great time. I finished off the evening with some tallisker.
I can only say that this place + old friends = a great evening. I hope this review is good enough for you.
