We reserved a table here for a meal one evening. Fantastic food! Excellent beer garden and lovely staff. I have a seafood pasta and my fiance had stew. Delightful and well priced! When you visit here you must go out to the amazing beer garden!

Good menu which offers something for everyone in a pub style menu which tasted well and generous proportions. Very busy the night we went with live Irish music playing and was quite noisy with limited seats available when we arrived. Worthwhile experience though and recommended.

Stopped in for a "take away" lunch (to go for all you folk from the US) and had a quick Guinness while I waited. The meal came up quickly, tasted delicious and the bartender provided good conversation while I waited. Nice spot.
