We popped in for drinks and food. Fab prices.... the bacon and cabbage was amazing. Only negative is no chilled soft drinks. Would certainly go back.

Not bad eats. The prices were decent and the food wasn't bad. I had the Irish Stew and a pint of Guinness. The wife had the Bacon and Cabbage. Both were very good. The service was a bit slow but everyone was polite.
