Service isnt great here, bathrooms are a bit dingy and its a bit dark, its a pub from the 80's so they havent really done anything since then, much nicer pubs in Cork with more character.

Staff and bouncers very unfriendly and rude. Bar staff were unhelpful. Was too overcrowded. Other than that, a nice crowd in the pub itself. Good age group ie not too young.

Cold beer and the food was simple pub food but seemed to be in high demand. We enjoyed our beer celebrating a birthday on St Pats Day with friends. The atmosphere was great.

Great venue for a beer, meal or a cup of tea. Varied menu available at reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and chatty. Would recommend to anyone visiting Cork.
