Went twice, food great, good selection of drinks, second night was for pre theater dinner and drinks, food and drinks well priced, does not look very big from the road but opens up into a big comfortable pub with many small rooms branching off

What a nice surprise across the street from the crystal factory. When we asked the staff at Waterford where to eat they all pointed across the street.

Food was just okay, service was a bit on the lacking side. Prices were a bit high for the service and quality.
