Called in for a coffee which was delicious and served by a pleasant young lady at 5.45 pm on Sat. 20th. after cycling the 90 km of the Waterford Greenway. Enquire why the front door was locked as I usually enter through there. The lady kindly called Tom the barman and he opened it. Noticed that sky sports was on... More

Fast service with a smile, good tasty pub grub and reasonable prices. I had the chicken burger and my husband had the roast beef. Would definitely return. The blonde lady who was serving was really bubbly and nice.

I had the prawn stirfry at the waitress's suggestion, but it was rather tasteless and plain. Hubby was happy with the two sandwiches he ordered. (I know, crazy guy opted for a second sandwich instead of a side). The brownie dessert was served warm with ice cream and it did redeem the meal.

Went here last because we had a meal voucher, thank god we didn't have to pay for the food! I had the jack Daniels ribs for starter, they were bland and came with this awful bread thing on the side, had absolutely no taste and was doughy. For the main course I got the chicken curry, the sauce was okay... More
