    A 4 for beers/atmosphere. A 3 for food. This a place strongly about the atmosphere and beers! It is a rather fun spot to be in but I don't really recommend the food as much. Service was ok (it wasn't very busy but still took a bit to be attended to our table of 3 during after work hours). The food was underwhelming and seemed rather basic - didn't necessarily match the pricing vs quality vs amount. It's nice to have food options but maybe stick more to less options and basic brewery/pub food without serving on that large of a tray.

    This is one of our favourite places in the city to grab a drink and some food (bite and a flight) they always have awesome brew options, we alway enjoy a flight. The food it's really good, as well I hear they make a lot of their sauces/dips in house which is a big win for kitchens these days!! When we were there last we had a server/manager/absolute legend helping us out and she went above and beyond to ensure that's that experience would great! 10/10 would totally recommend this place! Go grab a bite and a flight

    I have an office next door to Elite and have been a customer since they opened their doors. The service, food and drinks are excellent and they are great with large groups. We just hosted a 40th bday party there with about 50 people and the staff was outstanding while not ignoring any of the other patrons. Adrian, Tyler and co have created a great place and the best cider you will ever taste. Five stars.

    Great place, with a large selection of cider and beer. The also have a kitchen and you can order food. We tried a couple of the cider, a few of their beers, and some food and everything was awesome. Our waiter was fun to chat with and helpful. Their patio is quite large and very nicely decorated. They can accommodate big groups and small. All around there are small touches that can may go unnoticed but will certainly enhance your experience here. For instance, in the patio there are dog bowls and dog toys all over. There's a big water cooler that you can use and get water for yourself. We'll certainly go back.

    This place is so different from other pubs The theme is based around military history with emphasis on WW2 but don't let that deter you from going it is done in a classy way. The ciders which are many , will be able to quench everyones taste just pick the right one. The food we ordered was not bad but since this was our first time there not sure how the rest of the menu is but we did enjoy the atmosphere so much we will be returning. They have put a lot of work into the details of this themed pub that I won't spoil it with telling you , best to go discover it yourself. Safe Travels

Under strict orders from Berlin, the amount of Champagne he expected per week – usually for minimal compensation – was colossal (up to 400,000 bottles). Winegrowers and houses were thus compelled to mislabel and conceal as much of their stock as possible.
