Called in here for lunch midway through a day's journey. Friendly and efficient service. Atmospheric surroundings. Big, satisfying portions served with a friendly smile. The starter (a truly excellent chowder), was so filling, I couldn't finish the top quality main course (salmon). Absolutely no room for dessert! Wheelchair friendly.

Stopped here for dinner on the recommendation of our B&B owner. We got there around 630PM and it was busy. The hostess got us seated within a few minutes. We ordered drinks as we looked over the large menu. It was a nice selection. We had halibut, chicken kiev and fish and chips. The service was good for as busy... More

Great, authentic pub food. Had several meals and pints here during our stay! We were fortunate to hear live music as well.

Busy old fashioned pub. Very pleasant atmosphere with generous helpings if you are eating and sometimes music in the evenings.

We had a few drinks in the pub and it was very busy at the time. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The drink was quiet expensive we thought but we don't go out much so maybe not. I really liked this place and would return again.

This was a lovely pub with options for quiet, private space. The staff was attentive and quick and the food was amazing! It was wonderful to sit and listen to music or strike up a conversation. The lighting and decor was comfortable and inviting.

Sunday lunch in the bar was memorable; lots of activity ranging from sports lovers discussing yesterday's team Ireland rugby victory, along with those coming from mass at the cathedral across the street. Our sandwiches were freshly made and excellent; soup wasn't ready at 11:45 when we sat down; then three servers came to tell us when the soup was ready.... More
