Upon arrival at Arthur's, you'll be transported to another land in another time, as it is reminiscent of an old English pub - with all the warmth and character of a beloved 'local'. It is easy to see why Arthur's is loved by locals and visitors alike: it possesses many wonderful qualities, including being run for years by the same barkeepers, Rene and George, which further adds to its charm and cements it as a favorite.
Old-style pub lunches keep patrons coming back for more - think bangers and mash, steak and chips, hearty burgers and delicious pies, which daily specials. The a la carte menu brims with rib-sticking fare, perfect for lunch, mid-week suppers and after work sustenance. Additions of rugby paraphernalia to the decor illustrate that Arthur's draw sports-lovers, and welcome a rowdy Formula One and rugby crowd any day.
Enjoy the atmosphere of a long established 'local' that bustles with people, laughter and the odd cry of support for their favorite rugby team.
