When a pub dubs itself Irish then you pretty much know what to expect. Right? Wrong. Seriously lacking in Craic this place is gloomy, dull and has zero Irish fun factor. The staff couldn't care less in the kitchen at least although the bar staff were much friendlier and attentive. The food was... read more

What a great little pub! So friendly and welcoming. Great range of Irish and Aussie beers served by friendly staff. I was greeted in "Ma Duggan's Kitchen" by a very happy Irish gent. Fair dinkum, I could barely understand a word he said. He was just a lovely man that was keen to please. He quickly steered me into the... More

Wonderful place for a cheap and cheerful bite to eat either in the airy back deck or the cozy front bar. Great place to catchup with mates and have a refreshing beer after a hot day

We enjoyed our visit to Bathurst even more by visiting this Irish Pub, partaking such a delicious meal / atmosphere at such an affordable price. So pleased to have entered the premises and should we return to Bathurst ... guess where we will dine?

Stopped in when I first visited Bathurst as I was missing my local Irish bar in Melbourne. I was pleasantly surprised, it had a lot of great reviews and I can understand why. The atmosphere is defiantly quaint and Irish with history also. Has a front bar where they play Irish music on the 1st Sunday of every month, bistro... More

Had a lovely meal here. Portion sizes are large, food is wholesome and delicious. With Kilkenny and Guiness on tap, and a wide range of wine to choose from. Family owned and operated with friendly service.

Have just eaten here with my husband and two children. Great family friendly resturant with lots on offer. Extremely friendly staff, but not over the top. Yummy food...confit duck was delicious. Would definately recommend to anyone after above average pub grub with some fancier options too.

If you like, big plates of delicious food in a very friendly atmosphere, this is the place to go. Not for a quick nosh, only go if you have the time, park out the back if during office hours, 1 hour street parking closely monitored. Pork belly, pies, corned meat meals, delicious old fashioned food
