a delightful surprise on a Sunday morning
Take your own darts – the house darts are dull – and be prepared to stand a little off kilter because a stage partially obstructs the foul line but other than that a perfect place for steel tips. Reminiscent of true British pubs in the way it’s broken up into three rooms with cool, sunny open air seating dividing the two bars. A good size menu although not a stunning array of beers. The salsa – made fresh daily in-house – is among the best I’ve ever had; the chips, also made in-house, don’t quite do the salsa justice. The bartender was friendly without being in your face; could have stayed there all day.
