Wide variety of draught beers, ales and stout. Very nice selection of foods, many are Irish. Fish and Chips is the best around. The only thing missing would be the peat fire, so you will have to settle for wood.

We were out for a night out with friends. The atmosphere of this place is great. It's just like being in Ireland. The food on the other hand left a lot to be desired. Years ago, when the original owner was in charge ( he...More
