Had lunch here and cost 20 euro's for two pies and a tiny blob of mushy peas. The pie wasn't that hot and was 2 euro's for a small blob of mushy peas and 1 euro for gravy. Not much meat in the pie too!

Thank Matthew R

As cliched as it may sound, I've had better pies from supermarket delis. For the quality and flavour ("shamrock" pie), the price was on the steep side, especially as the food is preheated and just dished up. The mash was good, but the gravy wasn't very nice, had a definite "instant" taste. The service was prompt, though who I presume was the manager left me standing waiting to pay for two minutes while she sorted through junk mail catalogues, carefully examining each before eventually turning her attention to me. In short the good is the cleanliness, the prompt service, there was nothing really bad, but I can say the food was no more than average.

It was exactly what I needed, a place to rest my feet, have a delightful lunch and some awesome latte. The lady behind the counter was amazing. Great service, clean premises and good pie! Highly recommended for the weary soul.

The restaurant was small and not full, but we waited in vain for someone to wait on us. Finally gave up and went elsewhere.
