I've been a regular at the Arms since I turned 21, in 2003. The waitstaff and bartenders are people I consider friends over the years. It truly is a bar that relies heavily on regulars who are on a first-name basis there and the staff always remembers what I like to drink.
I will also go out on a limb and say that they have the best hamburgers in town- try the Big Ben.
The Arms is very cozy and comfortable for those who enjoy meeting foreigners of all kinds, mainly Europeans. The majority of the deep conversations I've had took place over a pint of Newcastle Brown Ale here.
