First visit for me, for my sister's 40th. Large family group of 17. Waitresses were lovely & welcoming. Food portions are very generous! None of us had any complaints about the food. Reasonably priced. Would go again and definitely recommend.

This pub has amazing food - there's no need to visit the restaurant, simply order from the bar food menu. Their chicken wings and steak are to die for. The Guinness is amazing too.

Thank ByrneA34
