The staff are very friendly & welcoming. Family friendly with good food a great range to choose from catering to all needs and reasonably priced, topped of with a pint and craic with the locals. The bathrooms could do with a deep cleanse other than that it was great

This is not your usual pub fare. Fresh ingredients, wonderfully cooked... You will definitely want to come back and try something else on the menu. Serving staff are friendly and welcoming. 5 stars!
