Best to get there early so can get the best place for the live music. There is a small beer garden in the back and sometimes music back there as well. All in all a fun place for a Saturday night!

Following a recommendation from our hotel we headed to The Cobblestone for an early evening drink. We had a lovely evening. The live music was fantastic. Could if happily stayed into the evening but had a restaurant reservation. Would definitely return.

A very nice pub with real trad live music and dance (not the touristic commercial stuff). Friendly barkeeper, lots of local people. Definitely recommend a visit!

There was singing as well. A couple people were there just to sing traditional songs, some a'cappella and some with musicians there. Have fun. Amazing place!
