The pub was very crowded and we got the very last free table. I was a little worried when I saw a sign that said there was a 45 minute wait on food orders but figured that if so many locals ate there (and were happy to wait 45 mins for food) that we should stick around. Our food took... More

We ate dinner here the other night. It was very crowded, but the service was friendly and helpful. There wasn't much vegetarian friendly food, but I suppose they probably don't cater to a large vegetarian crowd. My girlfriend got a small plate of the pasta of the day and it was more than she could eat. As a vegetarian I... More

Big meals, hearty starters. A starter is all you need for a quick meal. Friendly quick service and the fish was fresh!

Three people and three inedible meals. Vegetable selection consisted of soggy over cooked carrots, boiled potatoes and a medley of mushy cauliflower and broccoli. Thankfully the medley was covered in an insipid white sauce which hid the horrible mess under it. Pork was too chewy to eat, the "sausages" was one grizzly sample smothered in "plastic" gravy. The fisherman's basket... More

Located in the City centre, this pub is very popular with the locals, meaning that it must have a lot going for it. The menu of Irish Bar food is extensive, and meals are very satisfying. Service is quick, efficient and friendly. If you are looking for a Guinness and a hearty meal, then this is the place for you.

Thank Rod P
