Nothing spectacular but always a reliable place to go for a quick bite to eat at a very affordable price. Staff are always very pleasant and lovely atmosphere too

We stopped here for lunch and had an amazing meal - shepherd's pie, bangors and mash, and beef stew. Then dessert! It was fabulous and delicious, staff was gracious and kind. Definitely a local spot with kids and families enjoying meals together, I will definitely be going back and have recommended to friends and family.

Have been a few times, good for home cooked food. Big portions and nice staff and atmosphere. But both me and my partner felt very nauseous and got sick after dinner there one night. Not the highest quality and they charge for MiWadi (?!). Not many gf options either. Not high on my list after getting sick.

Stopped in here on a cold day over Christmas with my wife and son for lunch. I ordered the chicken with salad and chips and my wife had the shepherds pie and my son had chicken also. Our food arrived within minutes of ordering which was great as we were starving but my chicken was just about cooked but tasted... More

Cozy restaurant with friendly servers and varied menu. Fish and chips were far more than I could finish, and my children loved the stew. Beautiful old hearth setting on the second floor!

Went here today. Had to send my raw chicken wings back. Waitress didn't seem to care. Brought plate back to the kitchen and returned within minutes with the only difference on the plate being the single chicken wing that was raw removed. Not even a fresh new plate. Then opened other wings with a fork and knife and half of... More

Literally just out the door. Was so excited to try it out as it looked like a nice, cosy Irish restaurant. My friend ordered chicken wings..after biting into it, she realised it was raw. Raw chicken in a restaurant! I quietly beckoned the waitress over as my friend was too embarrassed to complain (Typical Irish!) I showed her the raw... More

Ate here last night as we just wanted to get in from the cold. We ordered lasagne and the daily special which was turkey and ham with stuffing. The girl who served us was very friendly. I was suspicious when our food arrived very quickly, literally 2 mins after we ordered. Poor quality, cheap ingredients and the "stuffing" was just... More

Great pub with a bit of history about it. The food is old style pub grub and nothing fancy but well cooked, filling and great value for money. Nice pint of Guinness and a free apple on the way out! Staff are very friendly and helpful. Would go back if in the area again.

Thank Markaz
