A great cider-based gastropub
I came here primarily for the cider list, and was not disappointed - it ran to 3 pages, maybe 60 or so ciders, about equally split between domestics and foreign. The latter included ciders from the UK, France, and Spain (Basque), which I expected, but also some from unexpected places like Germany and New Zealand. They also had a decent craft beer menu. The food was quite tasty, mostly small plates. We had the spinach and gruyere flatbread, salmon sliders, calamari with preserved lemons, and zucchini cakes, as well as a cherry tomato gaspacho that was a special that day. And, best of all, it's kind of an undiscovered gem - we got there at 7 on Sunday night and it was almost empty; we stayed until around 10 and it never got crowded or noisy.

Cider & people watching
With so many ciders to choose from, it was difficult to pick just one. We're definitely coming back on a weeknight for a tasting flight. The intensely flavorful food paired well with the fruity bubbliness of the cider. There is also bar seating that wraps around along giant windows, so you can watch the antics of Polk St.

Busy Night but Good drinks & Food
I had a reservation and It was a busy night when i was there. The service wasn't great (we were overlooked for quite some time before anyone even asked if we wanted drinks) but i'm chalking it up to the fact that it was a bit chaotic and my date was there a bit before me (i'm sure they checked in with her initially and she said she was waiting for someone so that took our table off the radar.) Once our ciders and food arrived it was great!
