I have been a regular there for 13 years, before leaving Cork for some sunny weather. But every time I visit back, this is the first place I go. The beer is always good, the staff ready to provide some explanations. 3 festivals a year for the beer lovers, food now nearly every evening (see Pompeii Pizza), one of the... More

We tasted the Chieftain Ipa, Rebel Red, Purgatory Pale Ale and Pale Ale Jameson. Good price, great taste. We love the artwork on the advertising. The pub itself was a great place to hang around.

Absolutely lovely staff and a great atmosphere. The pizza available was second to none and I would highly recommend getting a pizza to go along with your beer. Speaking of beer, the wheat beer has a beautiful flavour and the Jameson pale ale and Jameson strout were amazing, no other words, amazing.

This place is well worth a visit. We sat outside (a bit cold) under a heater and scoffed great pizza's and craft beers all very reasonably priced. When a table came free we went inside and enjoyed some great live music. Great atmosphere and happening place.

I like so much this place, pizza is awesome but if they see that people is freezing there, they should look for a solution, they're not a new pub they should look after their customers. Also considering that most tables are booked for parties or big groups is not nice to be there at 4°C more than 30 min.. Guys... More

Popped in for a swift one and came back for a great night of quality beer and music. The bar man (Andy) was knowledgable and friendly and knew you needed a drink before you did. Now on the hunt for this beer in the UK.

Everyone should visit this place when in cork. It brews its own craft beers and are fresh out of the tap. It's got its own pizzeria on site so the combination is unbelievable . Definitely a must stop if you like craft beers and pizza.
