Good atmosphere and always busy. Good food and drink - full with both locals and visitors alike. Interesting to see quite a few men waiting for their partners drinking.

A vibrant atmosphere certainly, but an uncomfortable edge to it when we were there, which was a Monday evening. Good plain cooking. Irish Stew so thick I could almost stand a spoon in it, but tasty and filling.

I do think they have TVs around the bar so they probably are! You won't be stuck finding a bar that shows it if they aren't!
