This is a fabulous pub..we were really impressed just inside the door..it oozes personality..atmosphere and friendliness and that was even before we discovered what lay behind...loads of nooks and crannies...could definitely have stayed for hours...will be back with time to spare..a must!

We stopped in for an early dinner. It is a cozy, warm, comfortable place. We had a delicious meal and a nice chat with some of the locals. The gentleman (barman) that served us was pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend this establishment.
