We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Great selection of food (including traditional Irish, like bacon and cabbage etc). The chicken kiev is exceptionally good.

Visited for Dinner with my Husband on a quiet Wednesday. Simple menu, I chose veg soup and cottage pie. Soup arrived suspiciously quickly, straight from a long spell in a microwave. Ridiculously hot. Ditto cottage pie. Simple food badly cooked. Avoid unless you enjoy microwaved...More

A very cozy and welcoming place. We had two of our meals with my sister in law that has just moved to this lovely part of the world. Delicious food and very fresh and deliciously prepared local mussels. Everything we tried was excellent

Traditional pub food with live music. While singer was decent we were looking for a trad session so we did not linger after dinner (sorry to say we did not find one, though we did try!!) Food was very good. Drinks reasonable.
