Had lunch here recently (September 2017) and it was very nice. A nice and cozy dining room with lovely decorations and good food. Ordered the soup and Steak and Guiness Pie and all was very satisfactory. Very happy with the meal and location.

stopped here for lunch after coming back up from the bay, we all had soup which was delicious , a small place so lucky if you can just walk in and get a seat, but well worth the try.
