My husband & I went at 7pm on a Friday night. There was a about a 20 min wait. This is a good sign. There were two families that left and had young children and there were both young and old couples there too. The manager came over to all of us waiting at the door several times to give us updates on the seating situation. Everyone VERY friendly. We ordered Keegan's Potato Chips for an appetizer. Freshly made, non greasy, potato chips that were kind of thick and had really good potato flavor, and not that burned oil flavor that homemade restaurant chips usually have. The chips were then drizzled with a blue cheese sauce and blue cheese crumbles. These are addicting!!! For dinner my husband had the Bookmaker Sandwich. It was nothing spectacular, but very good. Beef had lots of flavor, and the au jus was not overly salty. He had a side of Black & Tan beer batter onion rings. Those were really good. I had the Finnegan's Fry which was absolutly amazing!! The beer battered Haddock was really nice. The breading was crispy and not greasy with a great flavor. The fish was very fresh, flaky, and very flavorful. It was served with homemade lemon caper tartar sauce and a semi-sweet cole slaw. We were both so impressed with this place, that we went back the very next day for lunch!!! My 9 year old son chose to have the Bangers and Mash. WOW!!! These sausages tasted homemade with amazing flavor and a non processed texture. Potatoes great, gravy to die for!!
