We poped in this nice vintage furnished pub by chance. We didn't intend to have Lunch. We ordered irish Coffee and a magnificent slice of Guinness cake. The irish coffees were delicious and perfectly balanced. Not cheap but it'worth.

Really great setting and atmosphere!lovely quirky rooms..however menu is very limited especially for dinner!Most mains are just fish with bread and salad and is definitely more of a lunch spot. Charlie's supper was tasty but the prawns appeared to be frozen ones so bit disappointing....More
