This pub looks small on the outside, but when you go inside, you find it's nearly 3x larger! There's plenty of room for seating in here, and the menu is fairly cheap. The food was good, it wasn't too noisy, and there was a really cool ceiling fixture in the back room. The best thing was the deal at the... More

Great deal €12 for main (we both had steak) salad, fries and drink (long next beer or wine or diff drink). Food was delicious in a quiet quaint Irish Pub. Will definitely return.

Great steak and good eating area at the back. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Plenty of TV for soccer and football and non smoking areas.

If you like roasts & ordinary decent food this is for you. Brilliant carvery lunch. 2 or 3 joints per day carved in front of you by chef Alan. Plus specials fish & curry & stew etc. Very reasonable. Toilet Report: alright Pricing: very reasonable Recomendations to Owner: Get a better white wine selection. House white is woeful.

Nice pub in a nice part of Dublin. The 12 euro deal for a pint and a main course is excellent value especially as the food is really good. I had the burger and fries - top notch pub grub. The barman did not seem that bothered about the whole food thing and his lack of enthusiasm let the place... More

Had food downstairs before the party, was quite busy and there were no sits available, one of the waitresses spotted us straight away looking around and she got us seated quickly. Menus were...

This visit was to meet friends before the 6 nations rugby match. the place was busy but service was no problem. We had a bar snack which was very tasty and very reasonable. Its a ten minute walk from the stadium so not a long hike after a pint.
