My husband and I enjoyed lunch in this historical restaurant (one of the oldest buildings in Manhattan) and although the meal was a bit pricey, the food was good. I had a very tasty tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich and the sandwich must have been 3 inches high. The only negative was that although the bread looked like... More

I was visiting Manhattan and had the chicken pie and salad. It was a nice filling meal. I would recommend this place if you are visiting lower Manhatan anytime soon. When you visit don't forget to go upstairs for a look at the museum and recreated 18th century pub room.

Again we visited after being recommended by a friend who lives in Brooklyn, it's his local as it is close to Financial Area. Lovely building. Very helpful staff who explained all the real ales that they had, we tried the 3 taster ales 10/10. We only had a snack which was lovely but menu looked very good and reasonably priced.

It was the best homemade chicken pie very generous portions. Very relaxing atmosphere for lunch, air conditioned on a really hot day so perfect for a break to eat.

Service was not very good. When we sat down we asked for bread, it never came. When the waitress brought an extra glass of ice the glass was clearly broken but neither the bartender or waitress noticed it. The chicken pot pie was good. The fish and chips were fair.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Everything about it. We sat in the front bar room by the fire and ate and drank and were just enamored with the place. The whole chicken and the cheese plate and all the food and wine we had was all amazing

Historical landmark, great selection of beers, Irish bartender, great bar food, a place to remember - that sums it up. Our bartender was absolutely awesome. I'd go back just to sit and talk with her. She was gracious to talk with us and offer suggestions on the different beers on tap. The historical landmark/building is a great experience in itself.... More

A solid restaurant with a museum over the top, what more could you ask for?? The beer is a little pricey ( coors in a can for 7?) but a great experience.

We were in the area and had read about this place and decided to give it a try. We had a beer each and the vegetable flat bread just sitting at the bar. Our server was Leanne she was very friendly and engaged us in conversation. It was difficult as the music was very loud. The bar is very interesting.... More

Historical site, well done. Food was excellent, better than expected in this most historical building in NYC. The museum upstairs is outstanding.
