Popped in for a pre dinner drink €10.50 for a glass of wine...not only the cost but the white wine was not chilled. I put a couple of ice cubes in which is sacrilege for a €10.50 glass of wine!! Plenty of nicer bars around.More

Nice decor, friendly staff, warm and inviting but the food was just ok. The ham & cheese toastie was fine but nothing to brag about. The warm goat cheese salad had a nice amount of beets in it, the greens were over soaked with dressing,...More

We are here last week before a show in the Olympia. The menu was varied, the food tasty and the service good. The prices weren’t bad either. We’ll be back!

This should be a 5 out 5 Pub but the service was awful! Waitress was inattentive and almost rude. If the service was better I would really like this place. The food was very good so maybe a one off for the service.More
