Called in here for a drink before going on to a local restaurant. This looks like a really good pub, with lots of little corners. Very good service, and great smells coming from the food that was being served. Certainly worth another visit.

I went to this bar intending to watch an NFL game and was not disappointed. Along with a pretty good selection of beers on draft (didn't dip into the bottles/cans) they had plenty of televisions and I was satisfied with my experience.

Friendly staff, pint of draught beer only €4 each. Special deals €10 for main meal and a pint. Chicken curry was quite good.

try the 'meal deal' - 1 pint of guiness or wine + 1 main course (decent, not extraordinary, but still) = 10 euros - as it's one of the best deals in the area

all i have to say is, bangers and mash. Tastes just like what momma makes, tastes home made and the prices are fair.

There was a big match on that evening and all TV's and the big screen were showing this and there were people watching each and every one. It is a big and sprawling bar that is very well decorated and kept and the staff were really... More
