We stopped for a drink around 10 and live music was on. Despite being Tuesday night there were quite a few people and good atmosphere. The band played well and you could request a song too. Very uplifting!

I had fish and chips and have to say it was probably the worst pub fish and chips I’ve ever had. Hardly any fish, covered in a thin batter. The coleslaw was nice though. My partner had the corned beef sandwich and he wasn’t impressed....More

Lovely Irish pub with tasty food and live Celtic music. The drinks and food menu did not disappoint. The bread pudding was yum! Delightful experience.

Nice whisky selection, Smith’s Hicks on top is a must as usual. Good lobster roll and 40th burger. Nice atmosphere. The only reason this did not get a 5 is small seating on wobbly table.
