Description: The date on the exterior of this friendly bar says 1887 and there's an appropriately old-fashioned atmosphere on the inside too. The first thing that strikes you is the central circular bar, with its traditional brass rail and cute cherubs looking down from above. Elsewhere, the walls are decorated with all manner of old bottles, books and jars which, along with the real fireplace, give the impression of a homely, well lived-in space. As a result, McCabes is a popular destination for locals and tourists, ranging from shoppers to families, weekend revellers and, thanks to the six televisions, football fans wanting to catch up with the big fixtures.

“Great grub in a charming pub”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

Went for a quick bite to eat as i had missed the train and Mccabes was the closest. Happened to be a great choice. Menu isn't vast but the choices are ample, portion size is excellent and the service was great. Might have to miss my connecting train again and again. :)
