“Very welcoming.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

This is virtually in the port. So its great if you arrive on the train and have to kill time waiting for the Dublin ferry. Late licence. I visited at 12.15 on a sunday night Monday morning. They were still serving after 1am. There is karaoke so it can seem boisterous to a stranger but the locals are very welcoming. I havent tried the food but that is meant to be good too.

“convenient for boat travellers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Edinburgh Castle is located on the approach to the ferry port and is ideally located for the town and all amenities The food is excellent especially the Sunday Carvery which is very popular with the locals who can dine then pop next door to LIDL to do their shopping. The staff and proprietor are extremely helpful and friendly and the even do a delivery service

“Good pub food in depressing environment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Looks like a dive when you go in - half is a pool hall and half a bar/restaurant. When we went in there was a woman with a black eye and three small kids having dinner, so we were somewhat appalled. We stayed as it was Sunday and a lot of other places were closed. The food was great, the prices are super reasonable - if I remember correctly it was about 5 pounds for fish and chips and it was a HUGE portion.
