“Irish pub seems to promise but does not always deliver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Fairly recently opened, we experienced some teething problems with the service the first time we went. When we went again things were a bit better.

The pub is nicely set up in a fairly small space and was crowded both times so that we had to wait for a table both times we went. The tables are quite close together in some areas which can be a bit offputting but makes for friendly chat with strangers!

They had all the usual Irish draft beers, Guinness, Harp, Smthwick's, Kilkenny and a good selection of Canadian and other beers too. As well as beer there were a selection of wines and liquor all served from a handsome bar.

The food menu seemed interesting but didn't always live up to the promise. We found the fish pie to be a bit bland and the smoked salmon plate was a bit skimpy. The sausages were not well cooked being a bit flabby and not crisply fried or broiled but the colcanon (cabbage and mashed potato) was nice. In addition we were told the first day that we went that there were no pies of any kind left at 7.00 pm, the same waitress later brought us the wrong drinks so we were a bit doubtful about what she said. Service generally was friendly but not always quick and attentive.

They had a couple of musicians playing and singing one night which took up some of the sapace and didn't really enhance the experience,

We will probably go again.
