We were there with our daughter and son-in-law for a Saturday lunch.My husband and I ordered the reuben sandwich and it was one of the best reuben sandwiches I have ever had. Wish it had come with more than a pickle for the price. My daughter and her husband both enjoyed their lunch.

Noisy as all get out. Good scotch eggs and shepherd's pie. Professional and friendly service. Don't sit by the door to the patio if it's cold-- every time a smoker goes out there, you will get blasted with cold air. Not pleasant.

We were seated at 5:30 and our food didn't arrive until almost 6:30. The salad came out 5 minutes before the entrees. The 6 year old got her food last after the adults had been served. The waitress never came back to check on us and seemed way too preoccupied with the other servers. Food was just OK. Don't think... More

Being in an Irish Pub we had to have a reuben and dark beer. Well, I passed on the dark beer but had one more to my taste. Food was very good. The service not as much. The waitress was not very attentive & not much for conversation. Too bad the tip reflected!!

The moment you step in the pub, the atmosphere prepares you for an authentic Irish pub experience. I tried the Guinness and it tasted the same as it tastes on the other side of the pond, which definitely a good sign. The food on the other hand was pretty average. The deep fried cod was almost disappointing. It was overcooked... More

Their was more batter on the cod than fish itself and so greasy. The pieces were large and I peeled the batter off the last piece and ended up with only two tablespoons of fish. The plate was full of gold liquid (oil) when I moved it to the other side of the plate. The French fries we swimming in... More

Our business team had lunch here 2 days in a row and the soups were dissapointing the Italian wedding soup and 1/2 sandwich on Monday was small and soup the most boring I have ever had. The 1/2 Reuben looked like 1/3 a Reuben but it was good. The next day the bean and ham lacked both and not thick... More
