I had the Sole and my buddy had the lamb both are delicious. And I don’t even like fish or meadow maggots. They serve a proper Guinness too.

We had dinner and drinks here. The town is small so it was not crowded. We sat right in front of the fireplace, very nice inside and food was very good. Would recommend eating here.More

Friendly efficient service. Good food but awful coffee, especially if you like the real thing. Decor is a bit dark and heavy too. Live music is definitely a plus.More
