I enjoyed a couple of Irish coffees during my stay. Really good--along with good service, and not too expensive.

Went for early meal on Saturday at tea time. Nice meal lovely to be able to sit outside on a lovely October evening. Good varied menu with specials. We had 2 fish dishes. Service was a little slow but food was worth waiting for.

Not sure because we only went in to eat. We did see people taking drinks upstairs I think. They are very accommodating. You'd need to phone and check. Sorry
