We have dined several times before, and Molly's Yard never disappoints. A fine dining experience with good beers, coupled with a decent wine list, and I can't recommend enough the Irish Coffee to finish a pleasant ambience. Did I say , , , splendid ?

Surprisingly quiet downstairs Friday, though upstairs with larger tables and functions could have been busier. By 9:30 pm we were on our own in the quite small lower restaurant. Can't fault the starters, mains or desserts, which were all tasty and well presented. One minor...More
