This very small restaurant serves tops Irish food. Varied menu, excellent and patient service giving excellent advice. We were a table of 9 and each had different dishes. This place is a must if you want to eat a delicious Irish dish.

It’s best to call them or check the usual apps (open table etc.) to see if things have changed.
