This is the second time we have been here, the first being last year which we weren't very high on, but we thought since we were in the area and we were hungry, we would give it another try this time we're in town (Jan. 2013). Pretty big mistake....this place is just very dingy and dirty feeling, and I really want and try to make it work but it just doesn't do it for me. I ordered the "Bookmaker" which if you read it on the menu sounds very appetizing and great, but when it showed up with just some deli meat roast beef sliced on a huge loaf of bread (with no horse radish sauce mind you), I was very disappointed. The au jus sauce was decent enough, I guess. I got a side of the cheese dip sauce and ate about two bites worth of what tasted like kraft singles melted down and someone poured beer in it and stirred in up, disgusting really. My wife ordered a salad, kind of hard to screw up or be terrible so her's was ok she said. Oh and we tried the "Banger Tot's" from the appetizer menu, not too good to be honest. Just a fried block of potato, cheese and ground sausage mixed up deep fried covered in brown gravy probably made from a packet. I really regretted eating these because they looked terrible and weren't very good either, and made me feel terrible for eating them. Look, it wasn't the worst place in the world, but we won't ever be back. Two strikes and you're out in my book. I give it 2 stars because our waiter was nice enough, but pretty slow on the service. Food poor, feels ragged and run down. I've been to some real gems of Irish Pubs and this is not one.
