Excellent lunch in a sunny river bank cafe on a cold day so hot coffee very welcome then the best ever prawns with garlic & chili. So delicious. Mussels also very good. Service friendly but rather slow.

A very nice Irish pub that serves a great pint of Guinness. The place also provides good pub food, or if you prefer they have a full range restaurant also. Live music.
