A lovely old fashioned Irish pub. Great selection of beers and a good menu of local fayre. Staff a little surly - but they probably thought I was English. 🤫 worth a visit.

I'm the last to complaint. Very responsive staff and great mussels. Slightly off the beaten tracks which means better prices and beter staff. Please visit - it was a good experience.

Great ambience. We sat by the fire, great guinness and bangers and mash and a really nice space. There are different rooms, so check them all out to decide which speaks to you. Easy to miss as it has a diminutive street presence.
