This has become my local over the years but it has always been a warm and cosy place to have a pint even before that. The staff are lovely and mostly from Ireland as are many of the patrons.

Very authentic (seems to me) Irish pub. The food is okay. Our group really enjoyed the fish and chips. Small and cozy. Service is very good and friendly.

Best poured Guinness in Toronto. A must visit for Irish pub lovers. Have been visiting this pub for over 7 years now. Authentic Irish pub that you can never go wrong with.

Sat down for lunch and a beer. Bartender sees us then disappears for 6-7 mins. Comes back, pours a beer for a patron at the bar and dissapears again. Sat for about 15 mins with out service and decided that we may not want to have lunch and a few beers in this place so we got up and left.
