'The 'Wah' has served pub food for more than 80 years and does a decent job of it. The very popular bistro occupies two large and somewhat bland rooms at the rear of the pub with plenty of families among the clientele. The specials board changes regularly, while the main menu has a good selection of standard pub fare plus some interesting extras. The meat-lover's tasting plate entree is full of meaty delights such as tender lamb souvlaki and pork ribs. The chicken BLT burger is enormous, tasty and a bargain at $12, but dessert was a disappointing microwave-defrosted sticky-date pudding.
