Transcribed from notes dtd F, 10 Dec 2010.
My uncle and I were in town for Sly Fox's 15th Anniversary and it seemed as if a slight detour on the way home might be in order.
A long east-west running windowfront led to the entry at the corner of Bridge Street and Church Avenue and coming in, I passed the brewhouse on my left, followed by the m.d.s., then the lavatories and by turning right, the the restaurant area with its sea of standard tables and chairs. Just past the last of the tables was the busy kitchen.
Backing up, taking a right just before the m.d.s., put me in the bar area with the abbreviated "U"-shaped dark wood bar as its centerpiece. A shoulder-high partition divided the bar from the bar service area which sat in full view of passersby through the aforementioned long window. I am not a fishbowl barfly and so I took a seat at the bar near a friendly couple who saw fit to pick my addled brain when it was established that I was a beer writer.
Beers: Beyond the five (5) standards which I seldom bother with any more, they also had eight (8) CO2 taps, one (1) N2 tap and a cask going on the occasion of my visit. Variety is the spice of life.
Ambiance: It was a welcoming, clean, well-lit place for beer IAW company standards. I always enjoy visiting Iron Hill, no matter which location.
Return? Oh, yeah!

I went to this Iron Hill once. Parking was street only and was difficult. There were no nearby garages that I knew of. Once we arrived, we were seated immediately, which was nice. The atmosphere was not quite the same as other Iron Hills I've been to. It was much more cramped and loud. I definitively did not enjoy myself as much as I did at the others.
However, as I've come to expect from Iron Hill, the quality and selection of food and beer was very good and consistent. I do recall service was pretty good as well.
