“Will definitely be back.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2011

Nice comfortable bar with a simple but tasty menu. We both opted for deals, fish, chips and a pint for €15 and steak sandwich with a pint for the same price.

The fish is advertised as ling and arrived deep fired on a bed of mashed peas with tarter sauce and home made chips. The flavour of the fish was very delicate and was nearly overpowered by the Belfast Blonde beer batter, the texture was firm but not over done, overall a very enjoyable dish. The steak sandwich was well seasoned and came with onions and some home made pepper sauce and chips. We cleared out plates!

We could chose from a pint of Heineken, Belfast Blonde and Guinness to go with our food and we definitely felt with was good value for money.

Service was attentive through out, the staff seem interested in the food and beer they are serving which is refreshing.

Will definitely be back.

“Modern Irish food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2011

These guys really care about food and it shows. The menu offers a modern take on some Irish classics, using the very best ingredients. Recently in there I had a potted rabbit starter, followed by a pork chop main course. Utterly delicious. The atmosphere is great - there's a real buzz in the place as thanks to its Gastropub reputation they place an equal emphasis on their bar offering. Great wines, all available by the glass, unbelievably inventive cocktails and a huge huge range of craft beers. This is the best of what Irish pubs and restaurants do well.

“a great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2011

It was our first night in Dublin and we had walked all over and were looking for a place to eat. We happened to find this gastropub and what a gem it was. The service was very friendly and the food was fabulous. We both had salmon and were not disappointed... with anything. The wine was reasonably priced too. I'd go back there in a minute.

“Great Craic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2011

Fantastic food, great staff and sooooo much fun. Highly recommend you give this place a visit. We were in Dublin visiting from Australia and popped into this place for 'a pint' which inevitably turned into 5 or 6 pints. Great atmosphere, great 'craic' and the staff were sensational. Ill be back!!
