Let's start with the positive, my mother said "some spot, big crowd, shame the Guinness is not the same as mollies" packed full of Irish for the Manchester utd game and a vibrant atmosphere with top notch location. Shame they can't adhere to the 119 seconds of Arthur's recommendation for a good pint!! Staff friendly indeed, food service busy, but... More

Had a lovely cocktail in this bar. The staff were very welcoming, drinks were fantastic and prices were great too. The only thing that let this bar down were the toilet facilities, tap didnt work well to wash hands and the drier didnt work and no extra facilities to dry hands.

Pleasant enough. Second visit here in 3 days. Mainly for Guinness and there's only mainly lager on this island! Had Veggie Burger and fries with a sad excuse for side salad but overall it was totally acceptable. Had better and had a lot worse. Staff pleasant. Guinness great. Great venue. Only problem is the bloody flies that bother you but... More

The Guinness and Magners were ice cold and refreshing after a wander along the long promenade. The pub grub was first class, especially the toasties with thick cut bread. The waitresses were very attentive and good craic.

Came here for breakfast one morning. Nice table outside with good views and friendly, efficient staff. Full English was very good, but my son described the chicken in the nuggets as being "a bit squishy" ! Prices very reasonable and we would certainly return.
