It's a good place to drink a pint or two. If you want nothing but snacks, you can get cheese/salami, croquettes etc. Nice Guiness and the other beers.

Nice atmosphere, more windows and sunlight compared to other pubs in the area. Good finger food and decent priced drinks.

I've been to this pub/rest many times before and I used to like it. Now the kitchen is gone expect for some finger food. But worst of all, the staff (junior) turned out to be the most impolite, almost hostile arguing with paying customers. I was chocked. We are all different, and have bad days, but shouting is below dignity.... More

Actually great bar. Good atmosphere lively but not overly noisy. Sports shown on a couple of screens but there is a quite part just to eat and talk. Bar staff friendly and helpful. Happy hour 18.00 to 19.00. Food good and portions big had the burger and my friend had the ribs. More than enough and not overly expensive. So... More

I like the atmosphere in this bar, it's quite cosy. The food looks really good although I have never actually tried it. Happy hour 1800 to 1900 and drinks are half price.
