Visited on a Sunday evening & got a really warm welcome on arrival. We weren't sure what we wanted to drink so the barman gave us about four generous samples of beer before we made our choice. On top of that we received some complimentary...More

Would love if this pub was my local, don't be put off by the exterior, just step inside. We were there Wednesday night and the group playing were brilliant. Great character in the bar, it's unique.

Our visit here on a Saturday at 6:30 pm proved to be fun with the musicians striking up almost as we entered the premises. In spite of there being Ireland rugby on the TV, the pub was not cramped even though it is a tiny...More
