Went along for dinner on the Saturday night of the Queens Birthday weekend. Eleven of us in total. Was initially a bit concerned at the extent of the menu and trying to pick what might be good. Surely they can't do all those dishes well?
To my surprise everyone had an enjoyable meal, well prepared and presented, good value for money from a pub bisto. Hope it wasn't just the quiet night ensuring we got all the attention of the chef.

The staff were very friendly and there were good options for kids food. They also have a kids play area with dvds and a few toys. Family friendly. If you are looking for pub grub then you will enjoy the food here. If you are looking for fine dining perhaps choose elsewhere.

We dined here for lunch should have turned around at entrance everything looks like it needs a good scrub/updated very dark and lacks atmosphere. Meals were very average we didn't finish them, service was ok.

Had a couple of meals here when staying close by for a weekend. Meals are good quality bar meals that are served promptly.
The staff would have to be the best I have ever experienced anywhere, good Irish humour, would recommend that if you want a meal at a good price then this would be hard to beat

Walked over from the Hilton Hotel and ordered the special. A chicken Sand. Both of us were sick afterwards. There are much better places to eat. Avoid
