Lovely bar, great band and dj after. Packed for a Monday night. You wouldn't go here for a quiet conversation but without a doubt you would go there to dance the night away. Have to mention the security. Lovely, polite and good fun.

We enjoyed a family pub lunch here with 2 younger kids. Typical Irish pub food well cooked, kids were happy too with decent kids offer, lovely Kilkenny beer on tap and authentic Irish pub fee.

I wouldn't eat here on the weekend because it's packed with hens! But if you're on a hen it's the place to be. Great DJ, you can reserve an area in advance for free, plenty of room for a dance, can't complain!

Good friendly and attentive service that was very quick. Food above average. Classic pub grub.Don't know if I'd consider it ideal for vegetarians as not a lot of options on the main menu though.
