“Nice food poor service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

The food was ok and not to badly priced although the lady who served us didn't seem to have a clue! She served the couple who came in 10 mintues after us first even though when we walked in she wasnt doing anything, then neglected to tell us the specials! She then completely forgot my partners drink. We finished our meals and she cleared our plates, didn't ask if we wanted dessert, which we did and then brought us the bill, at this point I had had enough and decided I'd prefer an ice-cream from the spar rather then feeling unwelcome in a pub, we paid the bill without a tip, a first for me and went back to our b&b a little bit annoyed!

“Solid meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

Good food, decent prices, good service. The atmosphere was nice, but not in a traditional Irish pub sense.

“Great food, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2009

What looked like a typical pub with horseracing coverage on several televisions turned out to be a pleasant surprise when the food was delicious and the service was very personable. The fare was typical pub fare but the soup was very filling and savory and the bread demanded refills. The server suggested we move to a corner in the room where we could visit as we ate. All in all, a great experience.
