Friendly staff, pint of draught beer only €4 each. Special deals €10 for main meal and a pint. Chicken curry was quite good.

try the 'meal deal' - 1 pint of guiness or wine + 1 main course (decent, not extraordinary, but still) = 10 euros - as it's one of the best deals in the area

all i have to say is, bangers and mash. Tastes just like what momma makes, tastes home made and the prices are fair.
