A charming local gathering spot with delicious food and atmosphere. Great for a quick snack or a more hardy meal at lunch or breakfast. In heart of downtown and shopping areas.

We tried the Guinness stew which was very good with large pieces of meat and potatoes in a tasty sauce. Bacon and cabbage and the shepherds pie were also chosen. They were good too. We had a seat by the window on the second floor...we watched some young Irish dancers perform below. Homey atmosphere and good service.

It was relatively quiet when we came in but we're ignored for a while until we eventually just sat down ourselves. Staff weren't rude but I certainly... More

The red façade and beautiful pastries really catch your eye as you walk past this cute little restaurant. The food was very good, but the atmosphere was lovely. A seat next to the 2nd story window looking down at the street scene but still near the fireplace was perfect and the pictures of Irish writers and collection of Antique typewriters... More

From the moment we walked in the door the service was appalling, we were not even acknowledged by the manager who looked at us and then walked up the stairs without so much as a smile. After waiting for 5 mins we then had to ask for menus as the waitress was to busy talking to her friends. We received... More

We visited here on Sunday,We felt welcomed from the moment we went in the door. A nice gentleman showed us to the restaurant upstairs and assured us the prices were the same as the takeaway. The food was delivered promptly and the presentation was excellent. We enjoyed the meal We would definitely recommend this restaurant 😀
