Really love the decor and atmosphere here. It's very quirky vintage (sort of 1920s). Nice cocktail options as well as coffee and cake. We only stopped here for drinks in the middle of the day, but I expect it is lively at night. Definitely worth a visit for the decor alone.

Wine expensive also 7.20 for a medium glass of house wine. Woman on front desk ignored us when we arrived and left us to fend for ourselves, we... More

Charming Sunday evening spent here with hubby who has never been. I return again and again for the special ambiance and good food. The decor is decadent and whimsical. Eclectic collection of palms , elephant ornaments, laid out glamourously like a cruise ship from the 20s or somewhere in the Raj. We chose the pescatarian platter (€16), chunky chips with... More

Beautiful setting and great selection of drinks, loads of spirits and cocktails. Menu is quite basic and pretty limited but ok. The atmosphere is incredible though, never seen anything like it.

Prices are extremely reasonable 14,95 for a steak baguette with chips and on average 9 euros for a cocktail. I did the cocktail making with Julio two years ago... More

This pub is my favourite pub in the world! It's a hidden gem. Every time I visit see something different, drinks quite dear but worth every cent, day time visit only this time to show friends but it's great Dj at night
