The pub is a typical Irish one, with the best Franciscan Well beer in all the city. They offer a pizza which is the closest pizza to an italian one. Visit this pub during Christmas period because it offers a special atmosphere with all the decorations. Of course, wifi free.

Go here frequently for beer and pizza. Can't beat it. Wonderful craft beers and wood fired pizza - what's not to love. Always busy can be difficult to get a table in the evenings.

Love that there is a Pizza kiosk out the back. My pizza was slightly soggy but my girlfriend enjoyed hers. The Shandon stout was lovely but wouldn't be gone on the rest of the beers. Don't be fooled by the beer and whiskey deal advertised at the bar. Was handed a can as opposed to a pint for this. If... More

I love this place. It was the first craft beer pub/brewery in Cork and now supplies a wide range of beers through numerous commercial suppliers. Chieftain is one of the finest IPA/bitters I have tasted. BTW IPA stands for India Pale Ale and has a very long history, it's not 'Irish Pale Ale' nor was it invented in Ireland. The... More

Yes Guiness is lovely but sometimes you just want something else. Good selection of craft beer. Small indoor area but patio has heaters and a fireplace and was comfortable enough in December. We has dinner elsewhere but the pizzas going by looked pretty good.

Visited early on New Years Eve and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere with lovely choice of beers. We got a seat close to the bar and real mix of clients. Very good and knowledgeable staff who were more than happy to recommend different beers to those of unsure what to try. Pizza excellent and good value for money but unfortunately... More

I am going there almost every month sometimes often. Nice place warm atmosphere and they have good pizza place in it. You can taste different beer types but my recommendation is Franciscan Well IPA it is nice bit heavy but good with Pizza.

Very casual brewery / pub with a nice outdoor seating option. Great problem choosing my favorite brew as I liked them all, especially the Rebel Red. Friendly bartenders and historic location make for a great option for an evening out.

Delicious and real pizzas over there ! The beer garden is very nice and cosy, although it gets frisky at night despite the heaters. Too bad the seating inside is limited.

Arrived here mid-week shortly after it opened. The only food offered was pizza, which is baked in a wood fired oven in the back patio. The pizza was pretty good. It was a cold drizzly day so we ate inside. Inside seating is limited. It was quite cold inside so we kept our coats on, had a pint and finished... More
