Stopped in early New Year's Eve...place was quiet ...beer was cold ..staff friendly...a large pub which would be good to visit with a large crowd. A Guinness themed pool table.

Food is good and it attracts a lot of people, so definitely check it out if you wanna make new friends. Service was a bit slow, and they were not very busy, so not sure why that was.

We were surprised with quality of service and food. Although there is an old pub atmosphere the service and food was outstanding. The fillet steak was cooked perfectly and well presented. A mix of bistro and fine dining all in one.
