Had an awesome dinner here. I had the Irish beef which was top notch and cooked properly. My wife had the lamb which was really excellent! Try the fried Champ cake if you are a potato lover! Friendly staff and great service all around!

Went here for lunch this afternoon... what a lovely restaurant..! Had some delicious food, nice surroundings, great mix of customers (groups, couples, kids) and friendly staff. Apart from all this the cost was very reasonable too.
