Visited on Friday night. Lively crowd, nice large beer garden out back. Let after the one man band started. Good service with a selection of non standard beers available.

As always its the perfect place for a little bit of a good time they are friendly, good priced. Even tho it looks small from the front door they have a huge area out back. Good night all round. 5 star.

This pub is rocking!!! It's also massive out the back which was in full swing when we were there. Little wait for a drink at the bat but well worth a visit

Response from Cathy M | Property representative |
Hi Grainne, Thanks for your enquiry. On a Saturday night we do not hold reserve areas due to the size of the pub and the crowds that visit the pub on a Saturday night. We can hold a space up to around 6/7pm if that suited... More
