The brunch menu, served between 11 and 2 on Saturday & Sunday was a real find. I had the Irish Bene and my husband the Mushrooms on Toast. Both were large servings and really tasty. We will go back for sure.

Atmosphere and good pub grub are the hallmarks of a good pub and this one is excellent. Fish & chips or pasta are our favorites.
