BEWARE!!! Up for the rugby yesterday, and always a good sign when you see a big crowd in a restaurant...food was great, no complaints, however, watch out for prices advertised on the board outside as we were charged €2 extra when we got inside. We had the mixed grill, board outside quoted €2 cheaper than that on the menu inside,... More

Far far better than Pitt Bros!!!!!, courtesy right from the door, very warm welcome, the smell of good food was definitely tickling the taste buds, and the food was fabulous, lovely to see even though it was hectic, the staff taking the time to sing a gentleman happy birthday, be back next time I'm down!
