Stopped off for a light bite while having a short break away. Initial reaction is the place is very dark n a bit dreery.

Nice traditional pub to drop in for a quick lunch. The front looks nice, while the back has lost the traditional feel. Still, friendly staff worth calling in.

Mostly locals, maybe not on the tourist radar? But the ambiance and decor was nice, food was good. Traditional cottage pie - very tasty, large serving. Nice quick service Banoffee Pie very mild taste, not too sweet like some but not our favorite in Ireland Irish blond ale Co Mayo brewery was as expected, a light ale.

We stopped in the West after a visit to Matt Malloy's pub. The seafood chowder was the best I've ever eaten. Talking to the bartender, I found out that they have won several awards in Ireland and in Rhode Island, USA.
