Horrible service. Bar staff was VERY stupid & rude. On Feb 7th the bar was quite empty while the 6 Nations Rugby match was on (France vs Scotland). After a dinner some where else, a friend, my wife & myself decided to have a Hot whisky and Irish coffee in a pub instead of going to a normal coffee place.... More

Never expected the bar staff to be so rude....specially at 18:00 with bar not busy at all. I asked for a hot whiskey for my friend and a Bailey's coffee (as I felt like having coffee) and the bar attender got angry with me because she had to make thr coffee. She started to complain very loud with me as... More

Popped in here during the past week when it was quiet, didn't know what to expect at first but I was pleasantly surprised. The place to me at first looked more like a bar based business than a food establishment, but we gave it a go. The the menu was varied, uncomplicated and very reasonably priced. Service was friendly and... More

I had my fortieth party here recently. There is a function room on the first floor that is a good size with outside terrace at the back and also a second floor covered terrace with adjoining indoor room. We opted for the second floor as you can set up your own music system there. The terrace has a bar and... More

I've been here a few times for lunch with work. The food can be hit and miss, some items are nice and some are so awful you can't eat it. The good: Nice atmosphere, layout and seating. Items such as the club sandwich or Blt are fine for lunch and reasonably priced as with chips it's under 10 euro. Guys... More

We were a large group and no issue reserving a few tables. Nice decor and pleasant surroundings. A good variety of draught beers including their own sikas light for €3.50 which is excellent value.

Ate here with a group of work colleagues for lunch. The food was very slow to come out. Fair enough we were a big group (10/12), but waiting 50 minutes at lunch time is not ideal. THe food is tasty and served in generous portions. I had the burger which was good and the general consensus was positive. Its a... More
