Would never eat/drink in this place again. Most staff are nice except for one we encountered who was extremely rude towards other customers. Such a shame.

Typical Irish pub serving food. Nothing to complain about but nothing to recommend it. The usual fare of burgers fish and chips etc. all very reasonably priced and prepared. Good spot if you want something quick and cheerful
