Came here with my mom for food before my college orientation, there was a bit of a wait and it was very loud and rowdy (in the best way!) We had a blast, the 10 minute wait was WELL worth the amazing food and great, warm, welcoming atmosphere. Loved it here, will definitely be back during the school year!

Great selection of beer, both on tap and in bottles. One of my favorite places to connect with friends for a couple of cold ones.

A Irish pub setting with the charm to match. There is an outdoor patio, as well as an upstairs bar with its own patio as well. Friendly service, Guinness on tap, and friendly service!

Great place for burgers and other comfort foods. The fish and chips are really good as well. Fairly extensive beer list with new beers rotated in pretty frequently. Has outside seating as well as an outside bar.

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.

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

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
