“Better than pub food!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Nice, authentic ambiance, with traditional Irish food and drink. But the chef goes beyond, with tasty apps and entrees. Think lamb sliders, (nicely spiced), and well-prepared ahi tuna salad.

“Not Just Beer & Pub Food!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Very noisy Happy Hour Friday night and so much fun! Had great Ahi-Tuna, friend swore by Fish & Chips, while others chose Ruebens & sweet potato "waffle cuts." Many draughts to choose from and a pretty good selection of reasonably priced wines! Enjoyed the decor too. A good time was had by all!

“A good pub restaurant”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is a lively pub that sells very good pub grub. Service is good and friendly. Choice of beers is good (Hopfish IPA is tasty). The food menu is varied, quality is very good and you get lots for your money. I had the Fish and Chips. You get 3 large cod fillets and they are cooked really well. A much better alternative than eating in your hotel if you are travelling on business.

“Great pub”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Great food and good atmosphere. Went there a few times while on business and enjoyed unwinding and chatting with Jim behind the bar. Friendly and popular place! It was obviously by the amount of people who visit there that its a local hangout. I'll be back

“Nice Romantic Pub”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Food and service were very good.... nice atmosphere and seating was such that you did not feel you were eating in a pub unless you decided to sit at the bar side...
