We'd stumbled across this pub maybe a year ago after being stranded by a weather bomb in the basin marina. The place was rocking with great music and packed to the gills. The daytime ambience was very different - maybe 10 people on a Saturday...More

Situated in the middle of the town but with plenty of "Pay & Display" car parking quite near. Good pub atmosphere, wide ranging menu. The Moules Mariniere are very good value

Its a bit of a conundrum with odd opening hours ..... mostly from 4 pm I believe. Guinness is great .... not too sure about the food as I havent eaten here.

Was nice to get some free nibbles. Felt the menu was a bit limited so decided to go elsewhere for dinner.

We often visit here on a Sunday afternoon to play pool with a few drinks then have a meal. Meals are typical bar meals but are tasty and good value. Portion sizes are generous. The atmosphere is good and you'll often find live music in...More

We called into McMorrissey's for a quick dinner with my husband and son. We have been several times before and always enjoyed our meals. However, this time the smashies were not up to their usual standard. Slightly cold and our meals were just average. Had...More
