Foursquare Tips

  • Beware of Dennisio Von Huvenstein he will steal your unfinished drinks and then ask you for cab fare. He is also the 4th street pizza Barron. He secretly loves Pizza Hut.
  • Try an Old Speckled Hen. It's on tap here.
  • This is the place you want to be on a cold winter night! Comfort food, scotch, and a new & improved fireplace... Perfection!
  • The scotched egg is fantastic...unless you have cholesterol problems. Still, probably worth it anyway.
  • If a beer is made in the United Kingdom, The Royal Mile will probably have it. Follow the link for more about the pub:
  • Try the shepherd pie balls. Yum!!!! Also, they have the best spinach artichoke dip with toast...

  • A nice chill place to have a drink.
  • The Beefeater: half pound burger, roast beef, corned beef, fried onions, and Fuller's cheese sauce. For the gastronomically adventurous only, but delicious, oh yes.
