Been here on a couple of occasions...once for brunch and once for lunch.
A - Very relaxed atomosphere...fairly small in size with a mixture of booths, private 2-4 person tables and some shared "community" seating as well as space at the bar. Booths have high sides and backs so you feel somewhat secluded from others around you. Can be on the loud side when busy. Interesting bathroom sink location...outside of the bathrooms - can be confusing a bit at first especially since the sinks are old style trough-like industrial/restaurant kitchen style - makes you wonder if these are the sinks for the kitchen staff. If you are here during a brewing session, the smells here can be heavenly...
Q - Always been happy with the quality of the food and beer I've had here. Lots of locally grown and sourced foods. Smallish menu filled with many out of the ordinary dishes. Something for everyone.
S - Usually pretty good, but can be a touch slow when things get busy. Wait staff has been knowledgable about the food and beer menus and can generally answer any questions. Overall no complaints - and probably better than most smaller establishments.
S - Had about 10-12 beers on tap my last time there with 3 or 4 cask offerings and a couple of guest taps. Specialize in English style beers so had several varieties of bitter, ipa, brown ales and also a Belgian wit and a wheat beer. I tried the IPA and a bitter (both on cask) and found them quite enjoyable.
F - Large selection of unique and sometimes unusual foods with many sourced locally - excellent charcuterie selections and cheeses, house made sausages, excellent salads and sandwiches from the lunch menu. Some really great stuff on this menu - difficult to choose which to try on a single visit.
V - A bit pricey. For 2 people, we had 4 beers, a couple cheese plates (3-4 varieties) and a salad, which came out to ~$60 with tip. A bit much for lunch, but I do have to say that everything was excellent.
