A great little pub, friendly, warm welcome and in a central location. Visited with friends who were touring the area. A little warren, great atmosphere and lots of choice for lunch. All dishes we had were so tasty. Good portions and reasonably priced. 🌟🌟

We popped in for lunch and were really impressed with the speed of the service and the quality of the food-so much better than pub food back home. There was a great welcoming atmosphere and we were pleased we'd made the choice to call in.

Stopped in this pub for a bite to eat while exploring Derry with the family. It wasn't crowded at all for a late lunch and the staff was friendly and attentive. All of our food was served quickly and tasted great. Would definitely recommend it.

Great atmosphere, large pub over several floors, with a very good menu. Owner is a gent and has made one of the host homely pubs in the city. So convenient too, perfectly positioned between the Richmond centre and Foyleside.

We stopped in for a pint while walking the City Walls. It was a pleasant stop and the staff were friendly. It wasn't too busy on a Wednesday afternoon in June. Nice place!
