Went here on a Sunday night. The place was not too busy as you'd expect for Sunday. Had a great little atmosphere. Reminded me of an old irish pub. Located on a back street, had low lighting and lots of wood.

Sat at the bar, had good service, mostly because there wasn't many other people there. Bartender seemed fairly knowledgeable about the beers they carried there. The quality of the beer was questionable. Tried a couple of them and really only enjoyed Wobbly Bob.

They had about 10 different beers available, two on cask, which seemed awesome, but only one was available. Decent variety of styles represented.

Overall, a decent place to visit, but probably wouldn't go back just because of the beer. Friendly patrons and bartenders.

A great location for people watching and great beer from the towns eldest statesman in the craft beer movement. Plenty of outside seating, a cozy yet somewhat small inside in an old time homely beer pub feel circa the nineties. All dark brown old wood work. I would drink and eat here plenty if it was a convenient local place but it is 45 minutes by car. I come here mostly for the yummy cask cooled ESB. With that in mind I would say give my ratings on selection, food and service a once a year average over the last decade and Once a five year period prior to that time kind of rating.

We had lunch. Nice variety on the menu. The waitress was helpful and attentive but, there weren't many customers when we were there. Liked the beer variety. I was able to get a taste of one beer before I decided what I wanted to drink with lunch. Cute decor. I would go back there. It's off the beaten path in Broad Ripple which is nice.
