Landed here after a day in Belfast. Authentic local place, good simple food, Guinness on tap. Saw everyone from buddies having a pint, to families with grandmas and everyone in between. A great experience. Try it out!

Worth the wait to get lasagne and chips, with garlic bread and coleslaw, and my wife had chicken goujons. Great service as well. Will definitely come again.
