Wonderful taste of the full Irish dining experience. My root vegetable beef stew was wonderful. The fish and chips also looked great. Large portion and not over breaded or greasy. I would definatly return to this establishment.

Went for Lunch on Thursday. The bar was so clean and so warm as it was such a cold day. The lady who served us was so friendly and attentive. Food was lovely and service was quick. Will definitely be back.
