Had a lovely Sunday lunch. We were all happy with our food, good portions and it was reasonably priced. 3 course for children 2 course for adults and 1 cappuccino under €60. One of the children had veg and mash with their meal, but there was very little veg 2 carrots and some cauliflower. I would also have liked more... More

Went there last Sunday for Lunch was a little disappointed with my roast beef. I got the impression it was cooked the day before and was heated up. On the other hand my wife was delighted with her Cod. Some of the craft beers advertised were not available which was a big turnoff.

Our server Francis was good but all of 4/5 of our meals were terrible. A tablespoon of chilli sauce for a dry chicken burger cost 95c! Apparently this is the norm here..our steaks were tasteless, pale and dry from defrosting. Overall, won't be back and won't be recommending.

We've dined here a few times now. We didn't book on Sunday and arrived at 12.45, to be greeted by my pet hate 'we need this table back in an hour and 3/4'. The next group of 4 who arrived 15 minutes after us were told they had 2 hours?! The food is ok though the kids meals could do... More

Arrived here on a busy Sunday. We didn't reserve a table but they squeezed us in. Had 3 courses which were absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. Can't fault the food! The service was a little slow but they were very busy. Place itself is cosy, warm and welcoming right beside the canal which is beautiful on a sunny day and... More
