This was not what I expected for my daughter as she brought her friends to the patio to celebrate her 18th birthday. I mentioned it was her birthday in the reservation and her friends told the server yet she was not even wished a happy birthday by the server or any staff at the pub. Worse though was the service of the grumpy and snippy server. She did not introduce herself and was unpleasant to her guests throughout their stay. TOO BAD.

Great selection of beers, nicely crafted alt cocktails.
Pizza was excellent (thin crispy crust and tasty combos of toppings).
Service was prompt and very good in spite of Covid conditions.

We requested to be seated on the patio (it was an option on OpenTable when we made the reservation). It was very disappointing that when we arrived, the hostess told us that they couldn’t guarantee a spot on the patio. If we there are no guarantees that we aren’t going to be seated on the patio, this should NOT be an option when making a reservation!

Made a reservation for the patio, showed up and was sat inside. When I asked the host about it, she was very rude and basically told us “ too bad”

Service was good, pizzas was delicious! The noise was good, the music level was good and I appreciated the phone call back to confirm my seating as it was raining earlier. Definitely would recommend!

The patio was perfect and the service was amazing. Definitely feel safe with their precautions yet not uncomfortable because they make it nonchalant and easy to have fun while they make sure everyone is keeping healthy.

My group ate on their massive patio! It was really nice! The service was just ok. The food was very good! They have numerous beers on their bar menu & 2 ciders! Doesn’t anyone see room for improvement there????My biggest criticism was the brutal parking situation. Why can’t someone take the offensive and have places to park on the app instead of driving around for 25 minutes like I did. It would have been nice to see parking options on the app.

Value for money is major concern. National is my favourite but 17th did not get me that value. I had to spend 40% more for the same food and drinks that I can buy at any other National. Not a good return for money spent just because of the location. Sorry I won’t be back again unless I hear that you heard me. Take care.

We had such a great time for Drag Brunch! The music was a little loud for my liking but such an amazing atmosphere.
