Magwyer's Pub has typical Pub styling. It's a comfortable sports bar with clean tables and comfortable chairs. The menu is not extensive but does contain all of your regular pub food.

I chose this to try the wings - my wife had the steak stir fry which she thought was very good. I found the wings to be nice large ones - the mango habanero sauce which they rated as 5X heat ( out of 6 possible ) was not all that hot - but it was a good flavour and... More

Lots of beer options. Food and service is really good. Nice atmosphere where you can eat, drink and socialize without having to talk above the background noise.
