We enjoyed the food. Had the fish and chips and a burger! Fish and chips were delicious and the bartender recommended great Irish beers to complement our meal!

Went with the other half on a Friday night, had a three course meal with a lovely wine. Menu is good, waiting staff were great and the food itself was delicious and well presented. Will definitely be back.

Always a recommendation of mine when advising guests where to go. The food is a mix of fairly standard European food done to a very high standard and with good service. Recommended!
