An original and fully preserved Victorian Family Grocers & Bar established and unchanged since 1899. A unique cultural opportunity to experience Victorian times in modern day Waterford City. Sit in the snug and try the Victorian tea & coffee from the original grocery drawers or have a pint in the once men's-only bar, served and drank the Victorian way. An Original Waterford Experience.

A reminder of how Irish pubs used to be. No tv or radios. A time to talk and enjoy people's company. If you want to be sociable or just have a quite pint this is the place for you.

Great shop front. Recently brought back into usage. Really living piece of shop/bar history. Great barman. Good beers and a nice little whiskey collection. Go check it out ..... allow plenty of appreciation time.
