We arrived without a booking and were greeted warmly. We were informed that there was to be disco for university students that night and that it maybe noisey. Undaunted we booked. Had a great meal and watched as the crowd arrived. When we finally retired...More

This is a neat place with good food and drink! We had no reservation, and they were very welcoming at the end of their serving time.

Good food, drinks and traditional music. I had the seafood chowder with wheaten bread which was delicious. A traditional music band showed up and the music was great.

We were here with two families. Kids menu had a decent choice just lacking in vegetables with the options. Main menu had a wide variety, food was of good standard and service was excellent. Would definitely for a family meal out.

Went twice in two days. Great beer, great music and super friendly staff. The nachos were nasty though, it's that fake, pour on cheese on these odd crisps. But whatever...loved my Guiness and just chilled after a long day of driving.

All round excellent. Menu choice and food very good. Kids menu has steak! Service professional and friendly. Good value for money, not cheapest but quality and quantity worth it.

Hi Hazel. We were there minus the kids so I don't know if they have family rooms. Our room was an okay size, a little tired and too near the kitchen and nite club so would probably keep kids awake. The main vibe the weekend... More
