I normally don't write reviews, but I was so impressed by my bar tender Rose I just had to. She made us feel so welcome and taught us the meaning of "craic". Thank you so much for your service.

After an extended walk we dropped into the King‘s Head for their steak, a stout, an IPA and burger. All in all decent/good food, friendly staff and great central location. Spacious restaurant, good for larger groups.
