Terrible food. Cheap (ish) but cold mashed potatoes, luke warm lamb shank and a heap of fatty, fatty ribs. A tray of unlabelled sauces on the bar did something to flavour the food but didn't know what we were flavouring with? Really one of the most disgusting and disappointing ways to spend money. Would have been better off walking a few yard to McDonalds! Need some care in here - and a chef?

Visited on a damp night in November but to be honest could have picked a better place to eat. We each had a mixed grill but not the best one we had ever tasted as the food element was somewhat poor quality and sausages heavily mixed with other products. The bar itself was empty - possibly as it was a Tuesday evening. The atmosphere was non-existent and the 2 other people who were in (most probably regulars) were talking to the bar man. The" chef" bought the meals out to us but looked like he could have done with a good wash although he was polite. The bar itself is adorned with big screens which were playing music videos all night and the walls adorned with irish soccer, rugby and Gaelic football shirts.

Overall not the best place but the food filled a gap. Would we return there - probably not but be interested to see other reviews on Fridays and Saturdays when the place is most likely heaving and a lot better atmosphere. Would the food be any better though, that of course remains to be seen.
