This is a great, friendly bar with some live entertainment. It's really a good place to settle in for drinks. Large fireplace at back. The food is very average; ask wait staff for best picks.

We had lunch here and loved everything. The décor is great, the service was welcoming and efficient and the food was very good. I had liver and onions, which was wonderful! We will go again!

Had a wonderful meal here which was shared with two people, very tasty and fresh. The service was also quick for a busy place and server very knowledgable about the town. Gave us some good advice of what to see and do.

I was happy with all the gluten free options available. The live music on Friday night was very good quality, and there was also a good mix of people having a great time. I hope to return.

Wasn't too busy. Seated straight away. Fiancé had the fish and chips which he loved. I had chicken pie with mash. Pie was delicious!! Mash was disappointing. (Being Irish!) Very creamed and smooth in texture, as if water had been added. Didn't eat it. But the pie was filling enough so happy customer.
