We just had a quick lunch (bangers and mash), a drink (Guinness) topped with an Irish coffee. First the bangers were not cooked (still frozen inside) and the mash had ‘hair’. Then the Guinness was served in really dirty glasses which had stains of lipstick....More

The food was fine. The servers were extremely busy so by necessity they couldn't take much time at our table. The beer selection was good and of course I had to have a Guinness.

This place had good food at a decent price. There was a decent wait for the food but that was expected since they were pretty busy. The food came out fresh and tasty. I would visit here again!

Was overcharged, treated with disdain by a nasty tempered server, and hung up on after refusing to correct the bill. NEVER AGAIN!!
