“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Have been here a few times over the years, and the food is always nice. It's also a nice place to have a few drinks, though sometimes can be very quiet, and it is often aimed at the slightly more mature patrons?

“Run of the mill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

great value food, but on many occassions visiting we were forgotten about. As soon as we sat down we never seen service again until we hunted for them. extremely obnoxious barman who preferred talking to friends then taking orders. Poor decor.

“Great Irish breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We ate there for breakfast several times on this vacation and the food was excellent. Irish breakfast with all the trimmings and large portions. Great service with staff replacing coffee and toast as needed. We never had to ask for refills. The prices were reasonable too. Highly recommend the "big breakfast" Just wish they served it earlier in the morning as we often wanted to be on the road before 8 am. Loved eating there!
