Came to celebrate our birthdays - on a Thursday night at 8:00 pm the bar area downstairs was rammed. Young crowd, loud music, great buzz. Upstairs in the gallery our table for two allowed a view of down below - and yes, as the photos suggested, we really did have two Irish Dancers beating hell out of the table in... More

Visited for lunch on Saturday. First time ever we beat the crowds. Great food, guirky surroundings and would suit a group of tourists drinking and eating for the afternoon or just as suitable for a coffee and sandwich while the wife shops Henry streeet dry. If you haven't been give it a try you won't regret it.

This is a fantastic adaptive reuse of an old church. The selection of cocktails and pints is extensive and there's always live music and occasionally some Irish dancing! Will definitely spend more time here on my next visit.

Popped in for a couple of coffees just after it had opened at 1030 am. It's quite an impressive conversion from a place of worship into a hostelry, and retains many of the original features. Very welcoming and attentive staff

A unique atmosphere and setting with excellent food, good selection of wines, superb bar and ready friendly staff. Great entertainment with traditional duo and dancing. Finally the price was reasonable bearing in mind the quality and location. Well done.

Food was tasteless and overpriced. Saw a manager not being particularly nice to a staff member which also put me off the place. Interior is interesting and cool but atmosphere is pretentious. Would not recommend
