Went to this place with group of colleagues. The food were served quickly and i live the tranquillity of the place. Its a good place for group catch ups. I ordered the fish and chips.

Decided against my better judgement to go to the city and have a Guinness in a traditional atmosphere. Walked in the door to some horrific performance of an Irish song sung by a person playing the bodhran. Surrounded by the usual troop of drunken paddies,...More

The inside is kind of old and nothing particularly special. We were here for St Patty's Day so it was pretty busy, and there was a line outside despite it not being super busy when finally getting in. The Irish fries were nice though, and...More

We walked into the pub on a Wednesday evening to find an Irish Folk Music jam in progress. Musicians would join and and play. In the end a lively group was playing. The selection of beers was decent.

An Irish Pub that feels like your nan's lounge room. The food is wholesome and prepared from scratch on-site from Irish breads and butter, to the black and white pudding. Push your culinary limits or just settle for a great steak. Smoothly poured Guinness and craft beers, weekly live music sessions and friendly staff.
