Nice pub - friendly & historic. There were plenty of seats but i guess it gets busy. You can sit outside too.

Took 45mins to prepare from frozen food. Side salad looked like it was plated yesterday. Chicken Burger and wedges cost €10.50. Total rip off and disgraceful quality for the money. To add to the lunchtime atmosphere we had the pleasure of listening to a crowd if drunken idiots wailing along to the jukebox. Never again!!!

Once we arrived I was introduced to Niamh who greated me and my entourage with smiles, banter and perfect hospitality. No-one went dry and when the BBQ was ready we got the suprise of our lives by the unique settings... More

A pink burger is prob what you will end up with and that's only after you threat to put a bad review on TripAdvisor! !! Thankfully it's not a... More

Found this lovely bar and restaurant today- the food was good but slow and they hadn't turned the coffee machine on - so no coffee. Very reasonably priced and a great place to eat. The place wasn't busy, and the staff were friendly.

Grab a table by the fireplace and put up your feet! It was a damp day in March when we visited, and the glowing coal fireplace was just the ticket. We ordered our food at the bar and the waitress brought it to our table. There was a game on, so getting service was a little slow, but you can't... More
