Enjoyed our few drinks and the excellent bowl of Irish stew accompanied by fresh bread! Very reasonable but their best feature is the friendliness of the staff. The real fire comes a close second though.

Staff here very friendly. We had live music and a small crowd (which meant a whole table to ourselves... a rare thing!) Drinks average price, clientele ranged from tourists to locals, mostly ‘more mature’ ages but still worth a look for the atmosphere alone. It’s...More
