Enjoyed a great Irish pub experience in London. After venturing past a dark bar the pub opens up into a warren of rooms each with their own characteristics. The underground pub is fantastic. Food traditional pub fare, with beers cold and fresh. Good stuff!

It was my first visit in London, but for sure I will not be able to forget this pub. Great atmosphere, good music and nice beer. Inside was way bigger than was expecting.

Mate, this place is super busy at the weekend but it's also really expensive. There are much better places than this nearby! Have a look around!
