I ate here and had a couple of drinks this afternoon. There was lots of outdoor seating which was nice as the weather was good. They had a good selection of beers, the service was good and the shepherds pie was really tasty.

Hidden away and very authentic Irish bar. Nice selection and food was on point. Even had some outside seating. Lots of neat stuff to view on the walls and the bartender was great. Stop in and check it out.
