Basicfood at good value. But service is poor, waiting staff are lacking on customer service, friendliness, attention to detail, the basics really. We had 2 steaks and two steak sambos, they forgot one steak and brought the wrong food in the end.

This is a wonderful traditional Irish pub and restaurant. Great food at very reasonable prices. Plenty of variety to suit all tastes and hearty portions of beautifully presented food. The staff were all extremely helpful and pleasant, with excellent service. Well worth a special visit.
