No, didn't eat there, but there WAS live music just outside. We spent a "quality" couple of hours here, chatting with whomever was unlucky enough to be close by, and hmmmm, maybe had another pint or two. Very friendly place, people, and overall feeling. Thanks!

Had a family lunch here. They have a decent kids menu. Quite traditional food. Fish chips were good. My wife has a fish pie which was tasty. It’s a busy place which is a good sign. Price was mid range. Service was friendly and timely.

We stopped in for lunch. It was a place the locals visit and the food was great. I had what they call the “toasted special”. And a Guinness of course!

Great atmosphere, just like a typical Irish pub. Service friendly and many choices of beers. No live music, though.
