What a great pub. Lamb stew I have not had so good since my mother's. Sweet potato and onion soup. Both warm and hearty yet not starchy

My wife and I popped in for an early lunch and both enjoyed the fish chowder and fresh bread. Some other patrons were enjoying hearty Irish fare. Service was excellent and the restaurant was conveniently located in the center of town.
