Quick burger, £5.79, ok/good

Rather than the dodgy Mc's I opted for the Irish meat. Mince was a little too fatty but overall bun&chips were ok, not above average but you can't expect that much from a chain at a "value" pub price. On the whole a tasty meal. I was also pleased by the quick service and clean venue

We will give this place a miss, when they used to serve proper Irish food it was brilliant but when... More

This place has it all, good relaxed atmosphere for having a few drinks and a chinwag, or perhaps have a bit of food which has always been fresh and good quality, or a bit or a dance in the night, especially with the live bands they frequently have there
