We've eaten here several times before attending NC Symphony concerts. It is a convenient walking distance to the concert hall. We've always gone early, and there has never been a problem getting a table. That likely changes later in the evening. The vibe is warm and friendly, the wait staff are attentive to time, and the food is good English Pub food. I've had the shepherd's pie twice, and it really hits the spot, particularly on a chilly night. The cost is very reasonable: two dinners, two desserts, two glasses of wine and tip all for under $70.00. There are several booths, which provide privacy for 4-6 people. There are also several TVs, thereby providing a sports bar option. Each time we've been there have been tables set up for larger parties (e.g. 15-20).
