Came here as part of a hen-party on a Saturday evening, c.25 of us. Got a package of dinner, wine and a cocktail class. The upstairs restaurant was very busy even though it was early enough but the service was still very prompt. Dinner was absolutely delicious, everyone said all their food was lovely. The cocktail class went down a... More

Awesome, excellent, whatever superlative you want to use. The food combined with the outstanding traditional Irish music with their location on the river at the bridge? What could be better! Just go there- everything will take care of itself- food, service, atmosphere, music; All Wonderful!

Food was basic but tasty. Both had fish and chips. Live music from 6pm was what drew us there and was good. Unpleasant smell from toilets up to first level was a bit off-putting.

My husband and I are here for dinner (pub food) and enjoyed it a great deal. They have live music after 6, and lots of space. It was full on the main level so we are upstairs. It got a little warm and we would have liked a window to be opened for fresh air, but otherwise it was great!

Visited as a result of TripAdvisor reviews. Children ordered mash instead of chips, but chips arrived. Changed quickly but still. Tagliatelle dripping in cream, no real seasoning, kids fish goujons turned out to be one goujon, my husband had fish and chips, he had to share with my son. I had Clonakilty Chicken dish, a speciality. Fine, but roast vegetables... More
