I’m so pleased that we called into gave a quick drink - after a very friendly service we stopped for the majority of the day taking a light evening meal. Highly recommend the nachos with chicken.

Loved coming here even just for a drink. The place has a great vibe to it; authentically Irish with a good beer and spirit selection. A great place to warm you up! Will definitely come back!

Good take on the Irish pub and a nice place to have a drink. Live music makes for a fun atmosphere. Service is decent as is the food although nothing to write home about.
