Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Whale & Ale. You’ve done the world some good today.

Our favorite hang-out!!!

I have gone several times. I love the area blocks from the water. We go for the friends we have met there and the great food. I had the lamb salad. it is something you can not find on just any menu. Great English food!
