The burger was cooked perfectly and the honey mustard glaze on a moist piece of salmon were all very good. The atmosphere is very traditional and charming. Staff were very attentive and friendly.

Good selection, good service, lovely atmosphere in the bar. They have very friendly staff and often have music at night. Even by day, if there is a GAA match on, the atmosphere here is great
