Comfy, chilled, great food at a great price. Good portion sizes, lovely menu. Really happy with this find. Can always rely on Irish bar! Loved our evening here. Good atmosphere, and a good few inside even on a very cold weekend. Recommended!

A traditional Irish pub with excellent service and atmosphere. The owner is extremely hospitable and the waiting staff friendly and attentive. We stayed far longer than we should and certainly drank more than we should! But a good evening .

This is big, lively place with big screens for sports showing premier league and American sports. I had a burger and fries - very nice and a couple of Magners too. A really good way to prepare for seeing the Blackhawks at the United Centre.
