Attentive staff even though very busy. Most definitive a place that... More

Food always good. Usually busy and will have to wait for a table. Music some nights and traditional music in separate bar. Also quiet areas to drink.

Had a full irish in here. Asked for no sausages or tomato. Came out with threw sausages extra pudding. That was grand anyway. I have the feeling the ingredients are all cheap as in deli food. Egg was lovely and strong though. Tea was lovely also. I wouldn't go back for breakfast. But evening meals are always gorgeous here.
