If you keep hearing about the British gastropub phenomenon, this is a good place to see what the fuss is about. An alehouse since 1837, this modest-looking place was overhauled in 2002; it's now an open-plan, stone-walled nouveau pub with farmhouse tables and a big skylight. The monthly-changing, pan-Euro menus with daily specials are fresh and usually interesting (if egregiously spelled: beetroot-cumin "gazpatcio" and a "creviche" of salmon and scallops were on offer recently). Alongside the beers on tap—including Guinness, the Belgian white beer Leffe, and one or two "guest ales"—there's a good wine list.
