Looks like pub grub but my friends it surely is not!
Great selection and service par excellence! Starter of seafood chowdery type thingy, really scrummy, melted cheese, broth, smoked fish, white fish etc etc, it was all there! Yee haa!
Moving on ( or moving forwards as they say!) the main was, emm , yes what was the main? , ohhh yes, the main was a terrific pork belly with apple confit and delicious Irish colcannon (is that at all spelt right??!....I do not think so) anyway it was all fantastic with a creamy sauce, just sufficient but not soaking everything. Really fantastic food, not rushed, in a lovely bar with a great pint of Guinness, you will have to go a long way to beat this place! I will be back!

Great food of wonderful variety, carefully prepared. Dishes were generous sized as we shared two apps and a main and were overfull by far. Good ambience and a nice crowd when the music began

Food was excellent, waiter awesome, and bar help was fantastic. Very big place, with equally large upstairs. We were staying in Trim, found this online, and read good reviews.
