Wanted to go out on Friday night and picked a new pub that did food. Wow, what pub, great atmosphere, irish music, open fires, great food in upper restaurant. The Rib Eye steak was cooked to perfection and the service was superb.

Lovely traditional old style pub. From walking through the door until we left we had a really lovely experience. Staff had a warm friendly attitude but most of all we all enjoyed our dinners. We will defiantly visit again.
