History

Established in 1988.

Originally built in brick in 1935, this popular British eatery has had many lives as a machine shop, print shop and artist’s residence.

Converted by Grand House Management from an artist loft and studio, this traditional British Restaurant has been going strong for over 15 years.

Full liquor license was added in 1996 and a parking lot was added in 2009. It is entirely oak-paneled and carpeted, has a long oak bar with brass tap handles; a baby grand piano, and balcony seating overlooking the piano bar.
