Pretty good atmosphere like in most Irish pubs. Live music quite often. Cheap steaks on Sundays and Mondays!

Steak could be bounced off the wall Guinness pie was worse thing I have ever seen sent it back and got refund. Kilkenny sauce was a mix of mayo BBQ and tomato sauce whizzed up tasted terrible. Do not come here to eat as all that's edible is maybe a chip. New chef needed.

Good place in central surfers for a good feed, and a cold beer. Great staff. A great sports pub, with different sports on every tv.

This seems to be the place for drunken get-togethers and casual visits by patrons of all ages. Smoking area still a problem for non-smokers with indrafts of smoke, but a fun place for a Sunday sesh.
