McGees has really excellent food.Everyone in our party were very happy with their selection. I had the Chicken Pot Pie which was great. Fun place. You get a lot of food for a very reasonable price.

It was nice as McLaren’s is based on here not the other way round. Good bar, with good bar food and good vibes.

It's an Irish bar - simple!! It does everything you'd expect of the Irish bars across the City. Good choice of drinks at reasonable prices, wifi and a range of sports on TV. Only downside is it can get very busy
