Good Guinness poured well and nice temperature. The ale pie was nice and served on a hot plate, always nice. Not many tables, ate across from bar, just stools and ledges. A bit more dining space would be nice. Was early evening so quite quiet and relaxing.

Nice atmosphere, poured a good Guinness. At the time that was all that was required.

The Irish Heather is a neat to go to spot for a cold one.
A short walk thru the Heather leads you to a small gathering area in another building called the Whiskey House. A recent trip to Vancouver found us in the Whiskey House for a company event.
The appetizers were excellent and the Guiness Pot Pie to die for. Excellent food with a pint of good cold guiness.
Location is on the edge of Gastown and near the Downtown Eastside which should be avoided in darkness. Great place to visit during a walking trip of Gastown.

Nothing to rave about. The service was horrific, we got a table right beside the door. It was very chilly and the staff were quite rude, patronizing and slow service. Definitely not on the bucket list to return.

We made a poor decision and went here for the first time on St. Patricks Day - not a good idea. The place was a zoo and the service and food were average at best. We will try it again at another time to see if it is better, but there are definitely better pubs in the city if that is what you are interested in.
