Description: An authentic Irish pub experience here in Niagara on the Lake. In 2007 our founder Trevor Smyth built a pub to rival any on the emerald isle. Our focus is on using fresh quality ingredients in large portions. We will do anything to please our guest. Service is a point of pride at this pub. We deeply appreciate when guests choose us and want them to have an excellent time. We welcome customers as if they are guests in our home.

Really fell in love with the pub on the first visit and have returned since when in the area. There is a cozy warmth and richness that comes outta the woodwork there. The food and drink are amazing and comparible in price and th staff is welcoming, knowledgable and friendly. Hidden jem!

We only popped in for an afternoon drink, but lingered longer than we normally would have to take in the atmosphere, chat with our very friendly bartender, and sample one appetizer menu item. We learned more about beer through their sampler offering and accompanying discussions with the bartender than we have anywhere else - what was different is usually samplers are brought you to and that's it - he explained where they were from, what made them different, best food pairings - quite educational as well as treating ourselves to some excellent beer. Also received many demonstrations of how to create a clover in the head on a Guinness (very creative and clever) Appetizer were simple scallop and shrimp skewers, each wrapped in bacon but what made the difference was the bacon cooked perfectly and right touch of bbq sauce - not too much to drown out the flavors and not too skimpy to add nothing. Had we more time to stay in NOTL we would have returned to this place more than once - we'll be back!

I live nearby and this is my "go to" place for fish and chips. They don't take reservations and it is tiny so it can be hit and miss and loud as it is not very large. It adds to the atmosphere. They make their own potato chips, which they used to bring with the drinks. You have to adk noe for them and they charge a dollar for them, but they are worth it.

Great authentic Irish pub with great music (we were there on a Saturday night), and for a pub they have a good wine list and the food was superior to your standard pub fare, the lobster bisque was amazing!
