Nice enough set-up - an el-shaped bar with small tables on the side - larger tables further on the side. Eight beers - nice variety, esp. for the summer. One of the beers is on cask.

Bartender did the job, though in a rather mechanical way - friendly enough, though not nearly overly so, esp. as it wasn't busy.

All beers poured into pint glasses. Reasonable/standard prices for the beers. Didn't try the food. Beers were decent to very good (of the four I tried). Cask done well.

Certainly worth visiting.

Nice selection of beers, good value for those who like to try a lot with a 6-beer (5 oz pours) sampler for $8. The favorite of both my wife and myself was the 1634 rye beer but all of them were good.

There was about a 30-minute wait for a table on a Saturday night but once we got in the service was helpful and fast. The kitchen did make a mistake in sending out French onion soup instead of French fries (my wife had asked about the soup, but decided to get fries instead) but that was more than satisfactorily resolved - they sent a side of fries and didn't charge for the soup. :)
