Had a lovely Christmas lunch with colleagues. The ambience in the restaurant was lovely and it is a very relaxed setting. The service was very good and a well balanced menu with good wholesome food. Would recommend but not fine dining.

A wonderful gastropub, comfortable, small with great service! Although attached to a pub, the atmosphere is quiet and up scale. Menu is limited but with a good selection. The food and presentation equals any top restaurant. We had the cheeseburger (gourmet and handmade) and the...More

This cozy and friendly restaurant is the perfect place for an enjoyable evening out. The food was delicious and thoughtful. Service was warm and helpful. Sadly, I don't live in Dublin to frequent this gem more often!
