Friendly and helpful staff offering the best of Irish hospitality. Great spot for a reasonably priced beer and a bit of banter.

Called into the Gainborough Bar today, a lovely little pub full of locals ready for a chat. Very friendly bar staff and patrons, happy to chat to visitors and welcome them into their city.
