I visited crane lane tonight and paid €6.10 for a pint of Moretti beer and €7.70 for a G & T Disgraceful and absolutely way over priced. Will certainly not be returning here.

I visited this place 2 days ago. It's my favorite place in Cork. Big choice of beers (also regional beers), excellent customer service, not too expensive. I can't wait to go back there.
