I'm a young man 20 years old . My father was visiting from England this week. We decided to go up to our local pub for a few pints as a family. From the minute we stepped in we were treated with ignorance from a man named Oliver possibly a manager judging by shirt colour. We had between 6 of... More

Had carvery here . very good value of main course dessert and tea or coffee for €14.95. Tasty menu and very friendly staff. Restaurant was very busy with what seemed locals and those visiting the hospital nearby. Both had bread and butter pudding which was more like pancakes but no complaints. Limited parking

It's a nice pub/restarurant, some live events in evening so I would recommend it for pint. Unfortunately they are only competing with hospital canteen on food quality and portion size. I've been to variety of restaurants in area and this one was dissapointment on lunch menu front. You will find better food nearby, if you want pint or tea in... More
