A little bit of Irish

Good down to earth food, including Irish stew, shepherds pie, bangers. There is a Sunday brunch. Good bar crowd. You can also sit out on the deck in nice weather. Winter time fireplace is going, nice atmosphere

Went on a Thursday evening. Ate inside to stay cool, not so much , they left doors open onto deck. Ordered burgers, great tasting burgers! Wait staff was very lackluster, took our order, brought our food, watched him and two others standing around talking 2 each other, came 2 remove our plates! Not once did he come over 2 ask... More

We ate here twice on our trip to Bristol. Friday night is crowded and happily noisy. Very good Irish pub food.

Been here many times before and love the food and atmosphere. This time I ordered a soda, I usually have water, and the waitress asked me if I wanted I refill and I ok'd that. Well, when the bill came, they charged me for the refill. Refills in other restaurants are usually free as long as they not bottled beverages,... More

Springtime in New England and we are all ready to be out and about after a long, cold, snowy winter. And the perfect place to start is Aidan's Pub. My companion and I were lucky enough to get a table outside on the top deck and luckier still to have Tiffany as our waitress. Aidan's got it right when they... More

Stopped here today for lunch and managed to snag a nice outdoor table. What a great find! Had the Limerick burger and my wife, the cucumber sandwich. The fries that came with both were delicious! Great service too! Will definitely return for the pub fare!

Great atmosphere, good food, nice staff and great beer selection. Really good burgers stand out. Often has live music too. Nice place to visit in winter ....and summer out on deck. Right near Bristol harbor.

My family and I stopped by for lunch after a college visit and tour of RWU. The waitstaff were very friendly and the food was great! We would definitely go back!

food was great but the highlight of the meal was the tall good looking silver fox of a bouncer. the waitstaff was very friendly and the manager Richie was exceptional. the food was cooked to perfection and the Guiness was fantastic. someone named rabbit was our waiter and I think his name is because he works so quickly.
