Well and truely over priced on the drinks, what's wrong with these places? Staff were great but they hit you hard in the pocket for drinks, a place to stay clear if you just want a honest priced drink.

Wandered into this quaint little bar after hearing they did an Irish breakfast. So tested it out. I'm wary of places offering the full Irish which so often disappoint. This place does not. Greet by the friendly Irish bar an I was given a table in this charming place with Irish music playing in the back. A table next to... More
