Bar and comfort food

Many Irish dishes plus fish and chips, mac and cheese, also some tex-mex flavored dishes. All high quality. Love the lasagne. This place can be super quiet, but at times quite lively. They have been known to open for breakfast on Super Bowl Sunday (monday morning in NJ).

The food, service and crack were absolutely fantastic. The staff and customers could not be more friendly and welcoming, After spending five days travelling around China, working extremely long hours, FW was everything I was missing - good food, good beer, absolutely perfect coffee, and somewhere I could finally relax, The mix of Irish / Scottish / Western provides everything...

It was pure happiness - finally some good European food, and nice beer. We had there lazagna and tuna sandwich, Guinness and Rogue Ale. It's so rare here, so the price doesn't matter so much when you miss the food you got used to:) Personnel is very nice, also you can watch some sport channels on a big screen. Not... More

I had one drink then left again. Staff is very friendly but the prices are ridiculously high and there were several people smoking inside which bothered me too much.

I went to FW to watch a rugby match and catch up with a couple of mates. I looked at the menu and though that it was quite pricey for Nanjing but ordered as the lads had. When the food came out, wow! This was the real Western Pub food I was missing! The steak and Guinness pie was fantastic,... More

I have been coming here since it opened. Great bar with good food located in Nanjing. The owner is definitely hands on and runs a fun place to meet friends and get a bite to eat! Hot water is happily served on request!

I feel this place is declining with prices now expensive for Nanjing without the service or quality of food to match - last visit for me.

Called in for a drink ended up staying for dinner after the manager suggested some of their popular dishes. I had the veggie burger and my husband enjoyed his meal so much that he has returned other times to have it. Substantial servings.
