Neat pub with good food. I had the fish stew and the fish and chips. They were terrific. Also got to sit next to about 10 young people from all over Europe - great conversation.

I ordered the goats cheese puff last time I was there, and it was delicious and incredibly feeling. Would definitely recommend if you are super hungry and looking for traditional Irish food.
