“Real Irish pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you are looking for a proper Irish pub experience try this. Staff and other visitors were so friendly and gave us lots of tips of where to go. Had a meal there - good value, more than I could eat and my husband raved about his bangers and mash. Sampled Titanic whisky.

“Great beers and music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Hudson Bar is nestled in the city's historic Smithfield Market. They serve a variety of beers (standard and artisan) and have some great live music: from Spanish guitar to mellow acoustics.

“beer to expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Went here last night for St Patricks day. There was a good atmosphere and craic. The bar looks tiny from the outside but when you get in it is big, with a spacious beer garden and bars upstairs also. Annoyed though and shocked at the price of 2 beers! I got £1.30 back from a tenner so I wasnt happy and I was not given a receipt. I'm not sure if id go back for this reason, unless they do cheaper drinks!

“Cool place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Food was lovely and the bar staff great craic. A great place, full of artists and creativity.

I'd give the top floor a miss. It costs £5.00 but there was no one there.

Nice, relaxed atmosphere.
