Best Pub in Town

The authenticity is the biggest draw for me. As an Englishman I enjoy seeing all the games, "football" scarves and shirts. I really enjoy the Bangers and Mash along with many other great menu items. The staff is friendly and FUN! Also, the live music is a huge reason to visit. Some of the... read more

Fun little pub to stop in for a quick drink (or maybe even a leisurely one!) while out in New Haven.

I've had the Irish sausages while my son had curry chips. We loved it so much - along with the waitress and other guest that we knew we'd be back plenty more times. I brought my aunt over from Ireland there a few weeks later and had the Irish Breakfast. It was the best breakfast I have ever had! Delicious.... More

I went to the upstairs bar. It is pretty small but the bartender did a great job single-handedly serving a couple of dozen conference attendees that just flooded his bar all of the sudden.

If you go here, go here for the music or the games on tv. The food is less than average. The fries are terrible (soft). The cobb salad is not too bad. However, the staff is really nice.

I would like to congratulate Frank Cullimore for being voted Best Bartender in Advocate Best of New Haven Readers' Poll 2014. Frank works very hard in taking care of his customers. He has been great to me as well as my girlfriend Cat. My review is biased as I am a regular. This is one of the few restaurants in... More

I had a Chicken pie at Anna Liffey's and it was really nice, accompanied by a Guinness. I like the atmosphere, a mix between sport's bar and Irish pub. Service was good too, our waitress was friendly and upbeat. Food arrived fairly quickly.

The food is just always great. I've been going for years and never had a substandard meal. French fries are the best anywhere. They screen all the soccer matches. Good atmosphere, friendly people work there. The head chef is #1.

Had dinner and drinks here. Upstairs it was very busy, but went downstairs and it was virtually empty. Waitress was chatty and accommodating. We had the Irish curry which was very good. Variety of draft beers on tap and wines. We also had cocktails here unfortunately the long island iced tea tasted a little odd. Good atmosphere and the prices... More

We (family of four) stopped here last year on our way from NYC to Hartford (we were on vacation from NH). We couldn't stop talking about the food. My husband ordered the fish and chips and I ordered the Guinness Stew. The only issue was that they brought out two fish and chips instead of giving me my stew. They... More
