Love this place, the staff are lovely, great atmosphere. Tuesday nights they have live Irish sing a long music, always a great time. Only downfall is the pints are a bit overpriced compared to other Irish pubs on Christchurch.

Arranged to meet family here and what a good choice it was ! They had a good selection of food, with offers on everyday. The price of drinks was on a par with everywhere else we had been. The staff were friendly .
