Great Wings and Ribs along with good selection of beers and cocktails what more can you ask for? Of course other items available which looked good. Service was friendly and prompt, will visit again. Tables outside also available for when the sunshine is out.

Humous starter - the garlic bread with it was fantastic, the humous was one of the two worst I've eaten (the other was in the same weekend in Dublin), perhaps there's a need for a humous making class in ireland. The "skins" aren't skins, they're wedges, which is a shame because the topping was amazing, so only a small change... More

We had lunch here over the Easter Weekend and were really impressed. We booked through their website and if you join their VIP club on the site, you get a free cocktail or dessert with your first booking. We had a lovely cocktail, the Maverick which was delicious. We started with really tasty potato skins with bacon and then we... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time won't be back. Eight of us stuck at the very top floor beside the toilets. Brought us bottle of sparkling water we didn't ask for and charged us. No cheesecake left. Dropped a dessert on the floor. Waiter didn't have a clue! Large prawns and mussel pot - small prawns and tiny mussels.... More

We had the fish and chips. Tried to order a Jamison - no luck. Tried to order a Guinness- no luck. The food was good but the service was a little confused with who was doing what.

I tried the scotch bonnet for the first time last Friday, and it certainly won't be my last visit. I haven't been able to stop thinking about the rib eye steak I had. It was soft tender and melted in my mouth. It's one of the best steaks I've ever had I also had a side oh home made crispy... More

My first go to place when I head south of the boarder, the staff are great and the food is to die for. Seen some negative comments made and definitely don't agree, I've been here numerous times, at different times and days of the week and have never had an issue. The price is spot on for the area and... More

Went here for a family lunch on Saturday. It was not busy when we arrived. We waited approx 40 minutes for our food, whilst seeing other tables become occupied and being served. The food was nice, but very salty. I found it be expensive when compared to the same type of food elsewhere. I have eaten the same dish locally... More

Dear Helen, I am replying to your recent review of our restaurant. Having discussed your review with the staff on duty last Saturday, I felt it was only fair for me to reply with our side of the story. Firstly, we are sorry if the food was salty, unfortunately smoked fish has a "Salty" taste and you ordered both the... More
