Brilliant outdoor area with great heating. Perfect in winter. Food looks great when it comes out although haven't tried it myself. TVs to watch sport on also.

I stumbled upon this place when I first came to Drogheda and ended up making it my local as the staff are super friendly and the food is excellent. Both the older and the younger of the staff are very good. I would recommend this place.
