The food is fantastic. The Cullen Skink is a must although it's very filling. It's very difficult to pick from the menu as everything is delicious. Excellent service and ambience. Well worth a visit or 10.

Went in for a drink while I was out for a few drinks with friends. Decor is lovely and the staff were helpful. Will definitely be back in to try the food.
