We were looking for food on Friday November 30th at 5.15pm. We sat down and 15 minutes later despite a bar man/a female food manager and 2 servers, not one of them even offered us a menu. The bar was very quiet at this time, so we left as they obviously didn't require the business, if between the 4 of them, they couldn't be bothered to welcome us with menus.

Staying nearby on business we visited this restaurant for a team meal. We had pre booked but the service was excellent and the steak I ordered (Irish meat of course) was cooked to perfection. Combined with the Guinness and the tall church-like ceiling and the giant clock which I loved, this all made for a very enjoyable evening indeed.

I visited this restaurant with two family members for an evening meal. It wasn't crowded, so we were able to sit down immediately. The table itself was not particularly comfortable - very high (with either bench seats or stools).

I had the clam chowder and a steak, and both were delicious - I could not find any fault with the food. The chowder was tasty, fresh and had a great chunky texture, and the steak was very nicely seasoned and cooked exactly to specification. My fellow diners were equally happy with their food, but the portions were quite large and neither of them could finish everything.

Service was good to start with, but deteriorated later as the place got a little busier (not much busier though) and it became harder to get attention, even with a conspicuously empty glass.

Price was reasonable for what we ate. I would certainly eat here again.
