Great spot for a relaxing evening

Lovely relaxed atmosphere, open fire and a great line up of beers. Enjoyed the Wednesday evening Irish session which was very welcoming

We often go for a beer on a Friday night, sometimes take visitors to the Bay there for a winter's lunch and always enjoy a casual dinner there when we are looking for a "pub" meal.

I had high hopes for a good pub meal here but was sadly disappointed with the quality of the food and speed of service. We went on a Tuesday night and it was busy but by the time the meals arrived it was mostly empty. My daughters steak was so overdone it was impossible to eat, and the BBQ Pork... More

Bar service was great when we went but the food service was lacking. We waited an hour for food, the bacon on my burger was raw so left most of my meal, and a friends plate of nachos took another 20 minutes after everyone else had eaten. Won't be going back in a hurry.

What a great place to eat in the middle of winter. Went with the family. Really like the way your order here -go up and order and they bring it to you. It was busy. The men liked the range of beer.I liked the choice of wine. Meals were hearty -schnitzel = the small size was plenty and I believe... More

We went for a meal with our son and granddaughter. The choice was extensive and varied I particularly enjoyed the steak. The choices of beers is most impressive A great night out.

I was with a group of 9 on a busy Wednesday night. It was mostly an older crowd dining, and they all left quite early giving us more room, but I don't know if that's a usual Wednesday. The ambience was good, with a nice open fire. Good range of beers and good menu. I order the sharing platter which... More

We went for a Sunday dinner (3 adults and 3 kids) - very busy (go early!!) but service was good, staff friendly and we all enjoyed our dinners (roast was lovely). Good pub food, no surprises. Kids colouring in books and games looking a little worse for wear but appreciated them being there.

We visited this restaurant in April 2015, on a Saturday evening. We sat close to the large fireplace, and kept very warm. We both enjoyed the seafood chowder, and could have gone back for seconds. Very tasty, and served with crusty bread. My only dissapointment was that there was no music, either live or even back ground music. This place... More
