We went to the grand opening last evening and were pleasantly surprised to see many familiar faces, both customers and wait staff. They ran out of salmon, but the pesto cod (a new item) was excellent. The crowd was loud and laughing. Everyone seemed very happy to be back. The owner was chatting with customers and thanking everyone for coming. Looks like a success story to me!

I was also there on opening night and had a great time. I posted a review and photos of the menu on my blog if anyone wants to check it out: http://www.wheatoncalling.blogspot.com/ While there were some minor changes, I was happy to see that most of my favorite menu items and alot of the staff were still there!

Was there for St. Patrick's Day dinner. New owners very nice and working hard to please. The atmosphere definitely has changed with the bright white walls and big screen TVs. Does not feel like the cozy pub of yesterday. The TVs are not a welcome addition and should be kept by the bar. (Would welcome a larger bar) Gone were most of the tartans, though I am told they will be back. Must have needed a cleaning. Had the stew and corned beef and cabbage and shepherd's pie and the food tastes as good as always. Saw some regulars, but the atmosphere definitely has changed. Maybe it should be renamed the Half-mile.

I acknowledge that the changes may leave some people dismayed to varying degrees (for me, just a tiny bit on the loss of Rarebit). Personally, I don't mind the TVs, which were not on loudly, and the atmosphere didn't feel all that different. Either way, however, I'll gladly take the Half-Mile over the No-Mile.
