Just a short walk from Pack Square, this is an intimate neighborhood pub with a Celtic spin. English style ales are brewed on site and live music featuring Irish tunes or mountain music gets toes tapping Wednesday through Sunday. Bread, cheese & chutney makes a great light lunch or supper and Beef & Guinness Stew or Scilly Island Fish Cakes will stick to your ribs. Wash down a plate of fish and chips with a pint of stout and you'll swear things are looking just a tad greener around town. On Sunday the bar opens at 3p.
