Dined here today and have to say it was top class. Greeted professionally by Ola then pampered by Aisling and leane. Went for the fish n chips and it was lovely, the pint of Guinness was excellent which of course led to more. Really good...establishment with excellent service along with the banter, well done guys looking forward to next time 👊👊👊More

I'm incredibly impressed by the relaxed and friendly atmosphere brought by the wait staff, Leanne and Ashling in particular. A great pint of Guinness, Kelly's head was impressive!

As far as I'm aware it's an open bar and all public welcome. They serve food till 9pm. If your talking about the night club I'm not too sure. Maybe give them a call.

I don’t think so, I went and I don’t think it’s busy enough or select enough to say regulars only! What bar can afford to do that in this day and age unless they are top class.
