I have enjoyed really good beef and Guiness stew here and nice pint of Guiness. Good atmosphere. Good choice if you are looking for typical Irish pub in Portrush.

Visited here while staying in Portrush for business. Excellent food and a great pint of Guinness. The nachos where real tortillas not crisps. The Caesar salad was spot on and the skinny fries were lovely. Highly recommended!
