They have really big and comfortable rooms to sleep, with a lot of space to be and to keep your things. The food and the staff are really good and kind too.

Lovely place to be. Sitting next to the fire place with a Guinness surrounded by nice people. The food was good. But the atmosphere was better :) The guys who where working here were very nice and welcoming.

Friendly staff, food quite ok, seats near the fire were promised, but not kept. Paying the bill was a bit adventurous, had to go upstairs, machine in pub was not working, But, allover, it was quite ok.

Great service, great appetizers, and of course good beer. We didn't have any of the mains...however, enjoyed the onion rings and garlic bread with a couple pints of beer.
