Group of co workers headed on here after we had a meal elsewhere. The bar staff were friendly and helpful. The cocktail menu was a nice additional feature for some, the toilets were clean and tidy and the music was awful, but in the way that you sing along to and enjoy. I was the designated driver for the evening... More

A group of us went one night after work for food and some cocktails as we were planning our trip to London. Great service from the staff (especially Ben - great craic!) and they were very attentive. Had a bit of extra strawberry daiquiri leftover and they gave it to us which we were very happy about! Food was enjoyable... More

Called in for lunch as a group of 4, the service was friendly and quick but the food was very average, fish was very greasy, as was the chicken burger with the goujons not being great either. Side orders were small and came in silly little metal baskets, trying to be fancy when really there is no need and doesn't... More

Coming inside from what the server described as 'our Irish summer', we were greeted warmly at the door, menus in hand and asked to sit wherever pleased us. We enjoyed great service and a full explanation of specials and the types of ciders and beers on hand. We ordered the fish and chips, Guinness and steak pie, and chicken stir... More

My kids love this place. Child friendly with superb food. Staff are friendly and menu reasonably priced. If I say to the kids we are going for something to eat this is where they beg me to take them.

We have returned after giving the bar a break for a while. Previously the food was acceptable but on our recent visits the food has been excellent. It is good rustic cooking presented in a nice manner. If you are expecting swirls on your plates and nicely formed towers on the plate this is not for you but if you... More

This bar/restaurant can be found down an alley way, off the main street. It's an old fashioned, country place, that needs renovating, and a bit ruff-and-ready. However on my visit, it was busy, even though the town was very quiet, so the locals must see something that I missed. My visit was on a Sunday afternoon, and my first impression... More
