Maybe there is a different listing for the pub and I might be doing this review in the wrong arena. We were with a tour group with The Elders and The Moxie Strings who had a gig here. We didn't eat here but the pints were flowing! The atmosphere here is amazing. Lots of items from a church that was... More

We spent an evening here in November 2016, as a large group we all arrived together but had no problems with door staff, we were welcomed with open arms but when we walked in all of us gagged with the smell, somewhere between rotten eggs and...

Had dinner here with friends. Food and service were excellent - fun atmosphere and good prices. Would definitely eat -- and drink -- here again.

We stopped in for lunch and had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. We loved the atmosphere so much we returned for a night of music and drinks. The restaurant/bar has a lot of character and great for people watching. Good music and good drinks. Highly recommend.

My bother and I popped in for a nice pint and to listen to some live music. We arrive at 9 pm and by 10:45 we had to get the hell out as the band drove us up the wall. I have never been in a venue that allows the band to bang, strum and pick away at their musical... More

Reasonably priced food given the location. Cheery staff and although it is primarily pub food was good. Many local families there when we were there.

Quay and High Street are filled with restaurants and pubs. So, there's lots of choice....but is there? Most places cater to tourists and offer similar menus for similar prices (often 2-3 courses). So don't expect too much of it - like at this place. But why we chose it anyways? It's in the middle of the action, people had fun... More
