The last post is now closed. It is now the new venue for The Dubliner Irish bar and restaurant and has been refurbished. The Dubliner specialises in contemporary Irish quisine and great Craic !

Margarita's need work - no sweetness no salt around edge of glass. Food fine but not up to my Mexican standards. Please stop waitresses walking around with pine o clean in hand spraying tables. When eating that spray is not welcome!
