The bar staff were very friendly and offered great service. The atmosphere was average..very quite, mind you we were there at 7 o'clock so not many people - and that was where the disappointing part came...we waited 50 minutes for a steak and fettuccine. Husbands steak was below average and only warm..my meal was piping hot which was good,,,glad I asked for bacon to be added to it or I think it would have been a bit bland. Fab Guinness

Half decent beer selection and the 'Irish' menu is a nice (slight) change from standard pub food.
Good beers on tap, outdoor seating, what else would you want?
