Top Notch Bar with several different Areas each with its own style. Great Range of in-house beers and sampled a fantastic Oyster Stout (Yes Flavored with Oysters!) plus the new trend in Irish Gins and other Spirits. Brought back to our rented apartment a delicious Gin infused salmon plus a fantastic Italian Style Pizza, Yum!

We went in here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. Have eaten here before and enjoyed the food but on this occasion we weren't as impressed. The food took nearly an hour to come out and as we had a 2 year old with us who was very impatient and not wanting to sit still for this length of time,...

We were only at restaurant. It has nice location and lovely food. We ate fish which was really good. Sat outside but when inside to see it - looks like pub. Prices are normal and affordable. All in all - try and you will not feel sorry!
