Small, cozy little pub in a nice downtown area. I had the corned beef & cabbage, and it was ok. Not as good as at home, but good. Staff was super friendly. Would go back next time I'm in town.

This is the best place in the area to get great Irish fare in the south. Seasonal beers on tap, and the fish and chips are awesome!

I crave the fish and chips here. They have other options but I've never ordered anything but fish and chips. My husband likes the beer choices and always finds one he wants to try.

This is a small little restaurant right in the heart of downtown Franklin. A couple of tables outside on the front sidewalk that is nice seating for people watching. Not a lot of tables inside either -- but a big front window. They were busy...More

Thanks for your feedback! Actually in a few weeks we are rolling out our new traditional sheperds pie with a gravy base versus the tomato base we have now. Hope you give it a try and let us know what you think! Thanks again!!

Awesome Irish fare! Cozy, yet unique. Located in the heart of Historic Downtown Franklin, this restaurant is on my list of favorites and I will become a regular when I’m back in Franklin again.

Stopped in for a couple of beers and was a bit disappointed. Franklin is a place that has very few bars and restaurants so selection is sparse and demand is high. Expect to wait. Food looked great.More

Walking around downtown Franklin, we stopped here for something to drink. Sat outside to people watch. Decided to try the Bangers and Mash. Very good! Chicken sausage with spinach and asiagio cheese. Red skin mashed potatoes, Irish Soda bread and spicy mustard - yum! Across...More

This place haas a good selection of beers. It is nice to see options for stouts on a menu. If you enjoy stouts, then give the Goodwood a try. It's spent time in a used bourbon barrel. My wife and I split an order of...More

This is my favorite pub I've been to ever- and I'm an Irish dancer, so I've been to, and performed at, a lot of pubs. I love this place for its local feel. It's not trying to be something it's not. There's not a lot...More
