This is our go-to pub if we feel like a Friday drink. Loooove the Kilkenny creamflow beer, very friendly and chatty staff. There’s usually a couple of platters of sausage rolls and sandwiches handed around to customers free/gratis. Great pub, great atmosphere, very welcoming.

We were here on a Tuesday so it wasn't busy, but had great food for really fair prices, and a good selection of beers for a pub. Bet it's the place to be on fri/sat nights! Would definitely come back
