A very good option for lunch or dinner and drinks in Drogheda. A traditional style pub/restaurant, with excellent food. Very popular with locals and passers through the town, serves mainly typical Irish dishes, roast beef, turkey, ham, lamb with roast or mashed potatoes, vegetables and other dishes too at a very reasonable price, and very fast and efficient service.
