We pulled in and found a space right away. We walked in the door and were seated right away. The server came immediately and took our drink order. The Irish coffee was the best I've had ~ better than the Buena Vista in San Francisco!...More

Visited before our Medieval Castle dinner and was very welcoming and authentic looking. Just stayed for a pint but wished we had more time for a real dinner. Definitely a place to visit.
