They have a great fire place. The fish and chips was amazing and a must. The Guinness was poured oh so nice. The rugby game was playing and we had a great time. Good prices.

Went to see Peter Hook and the light in Dolan's ...it was immense. I would be a Joy Division and New Order fan in my youth. Dolan's venue is ideal for gig like this ....up close and personal with the act.
