“Great value pub lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I had a couple of hours to kill before catching a bus, so decided to pop in here for lunch and a couple pints. The staff was very friendly, and didn't constantly hover waiting for my order - I nursed a Guinness for nearly an hour - but were quick and attentive when I did indicate I was ready. I ordered the wrap of the day - chicken and stuffing - which came with chips and some salad. It also came with a very yummy tomato & chili jam in a cute little jar which I would've loved more of! The portion was quite generous for lunchtime, with lots of grilled chicken in the wrap and plenty of chips. I stayed for another Guinness after lunch, and they have a few newspapers on a shelf, which was nice for passing the time before my bus. Would definitely come back again!

“Yummy, Friendly and oh so Irish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We went to Ireland for a family trip. We ventured to Limerick to see the Frank McCourt Museum. On our walk, we saw from the main road a colorful pub. We walked down the street and entered this lovely establishment. Great food and awesome owner!!! Definitely a place to visit!
