“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

On outside appearances it looked a bit "naff" and touristy, however on entering the food looked wonderful (we only had a tea and coffee) - very reasonable prices for location. Full at lunchtime with local business people, which says it all really.

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

stopped in here for the music and decided to stay as it was so good, but what blew our party away was the 3 young irish girl dancers they were superb, could have watched em all night. Ordered some food which was served by a pleasant waitress and it was a large helping.

“Excellent place. Would highly recommend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This was a great find for a muti-generational group just having arrived from the US. We each had a wonderful meal, that was perfectly presented. Service from seating to the collection of the check was prompt and attentive. Our table and surroundings were very clean We all thoroughly enjoyed the pub atmosphere here.
