Disclaimer: I went pre-Theatre, so that's a busy time. Still, the food was good, and the atmosphere inviting. Service is very friendly, although the staff seemed a bit overloaded with the volume. It's pub fare, but good pub fare.

Lots of celebrating on the 17th ☘️, lots of people, loud music! Not even Irish music! Food was good, so was the service.
