Perfect place to warm up with a pint near the fire. Courtney's has a huge selection of beers and ciders - definitely something for everyone.

We were sick of Irish stouts and stumbled on this place with a great selection of local microbrew. Great atmosphere with a fireplace, highly recommend. No food.
