Dropped in for a drink on a Wednesday afternoon and the main bar had about 8 musicians playing traditional Irish tunes which provided a great atmosphere. The beer choices are limited to Guinness and some lagers and service was friendly and efficient. Did not have...time to eat but there are two rooms with tables set for meals. The decor is simple but provides a little taste of Ireland.More

We went here for food last Sunday as we hadn’t been for years and my parents were visiting from Ireland. I remember the food being amazing a few years ago however apparently it has changed ownership since. Was so disappointed by the food when it...arrived. Potatoes were cold and the fish and chips were burned. It is so overpriced for what it is. The traditional Irish music was brilliant however and was the only redeeming thing of the whole evening. So disappointing and won’t be back.More

Completely over-priced and the food is terrible. Ordered the pie and it came out as a soup. Pastry was soggy and meat was too tough. Girlfriend ordered the Sunday roast and it was more Mediterranean. The worst one she's had.. For $25, there are much...better places out thereMore

Enjoy this bar - been there several times for drinks only, it hasn't drawn me to eat there as yet. Menu doesn't look overly Irish - more 'general pub'. Wine list doesn't overly excite, but certainly should be something there to please if you're meeting...for drink with friends for a gathering. Can be cosy inside, yet a nice table we sat at last time had us almost on top of the toilets, so perhaps not so cosy. Definitely warm inside though, in terms of decor and temperature. Live music also too mid-week. Has a roof top area that is small but nice in warm weather. Place is worth a look if you're in the area.More

My husband got to go back to his roots with a full Irish breakfast, Guinness and Irish coffee to finish and it was grand. The food was straight forward and tasty, the service friendly and down to earth and the atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing....We look forward to going back for a session soon.More

Amazing Irish pub with over 20 musicians firing up for the Wednesday evening session last week. Fabulous! Friendly service, great guiness and good food. Do yourself a favour and get down for a toe tapping time, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Work lunch and the staff were the highlight. I recommend the Irish chips-served with sauce on the side!

Wine list was hopeless, but atmosphere good. Cider options good. Food reasonable, four stars is a bit too high, three stars would be too low. Do go here for the cider.

Our first time here and being a Friday night we were surprised how quiet it was. Friendly Staff helped us by making the Irish Stew the recommended choice, so we said “sure”. It came with one slice of Soda Bread and at $22.00 (if I...remember correctly) the Irish Stew was delicious and tender. All washed down with a Pint of Kilkenny Ale. My partner had the Guinness and felt it wasn’t like the Guinness back in Ireland. That’s because the Guinness in this establishment is imported from Amsterdam. Doesn’t make it awful or nice, just different. Hopefully next time we come, I would love to see it at is busy time. Otherwise thumbs up Guys.More
