“A plain good bar, without the pretence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

I visited there in April, and spent a couple of evenings there. It's an Irish Bar, but not one of the chains, and it doesn't need to call itself an Irish Bar. It's such a nice bar in its own right, with its own character.
There is always some sort of sport on the screens in the pub , but do not let that put you off......., as in keeping with a good traditional bar- the TV is not the priority and the sound is usually off or very low, and the sound you hear, is from the Internet based music encyclopedia, again at a low enough volume, which means you can actually talk, hear and be heard.
Local French staff very welcoming and helpful- and can answer most of your down to earth queries. The price of a pint isn't exorbitant and they serve snacks such as chicken wings at the bar.
Don't panic if you hear the bell ring- it doesn't mean closing time, it rings when you leave a tip.
Open till around 2am each night.
Lookin forward to next visit there...

Spent a lot of time in this one. Awesome prices, brilliant drinks, lovely staff and regulars. And lots of English football shown. Loved it there.
