Really quirky with a warren of rooms, bars and floors. Food was good although not haute cuisine - great pie and chips - Guinness was gorgeous

This is a large Irish pub with music, some nights played live downstairs. It gathers quite a crowd, from both nationals and tourists.

Have just tried to book a table for Friday the 23rd of September through your website. We are 4 Australians traveling half way across the world and your website has told us that Friday nights you don't take bookings for any less than 8. That's made me super disappointed as we don't want to miss out on the experience of dining with you. Please tell me that this is only the case through the Internet and that I am able to booked through a phone call and guaranteed a table. Thanks 👍🏼

Mate, this place is super busy at the weekend but it's also really expensive. There are much better places than this nearby! Have a look around!
