Great heavy British food... I didn't have dinner, but it was fine for brunch and not too expensive. I like the vibe of the place. Scotch Egg and Poutine... yummy food goodness.

British food is not for everyone, but I love it. In Dickens we read of the ravenous appetites consuming the most bizarre items, of Tiny Tim's bag of lard boiled with brandy and a plum, of whatever it was Fagin gave his small boys in London's slums. Here we share a taste of those delights. Only, while the menu may give pause to some, its good stuff, really.

Pros: Heart stopping good food

Cons: Would be more British if the place had thick cigarette smoke

A group of 6 of us went there for dinner yesterday.

First the service. There was our table and 1 other group in the place, yet the service was extremely slow. On 2 occassions the solitary server went out the door and left, coming back a few minutes later.

Now the food. You get 2 menus, a bar menu and a dinner menu. The bar menu offers "snacks" at about $3-$6 a pop. We had 2 items. They were nice, but small. Value for money is questionable.

The dinner entree's had about 5-6 dishes on it. Price wise they ranged from about $14 for fish and chips (the Duck mentioned by Lori is down to $14 too!) to an eye watering $25 for their Sunday Roast. We had 3 different dishes at the table (no Sunday roast!). The consensus was that they were alright, but nothing special. We tried the desert and consensus was split on that - the trifle wasn't for everyone, the spotted d1ck was ok but the sticky toffee pudding was good.

$35 a head for 2 shared snacks, 6 entrees, 3 desserts and 2 rounds of drinks. Not extortionate, but not cheap.

The menu choices are different (and as a Brit I appreciated some of them) and the beer choice is good, but it's difficult to find a reason to specifically go back when there are so many other good places around.

Pros: Good beer selection, food is of good quality

Cons: Service is sloooow, quantity of food is small

We were excited for another restaurant in our neighborhood that served good beer and food but we came out with empty pockets and hungry. My husband got the duck and ate it in 2 bites- it was $16.00. We left and went to hot lips to get more food. There are too many really good restaurants with better food and beer selection with reasonable prices. We will not go back even though we can walk there.
