Atmosphere was great. Service was great. Had Shepherds Pie and Fish and Chips. Pie was excellent with a nice texture of potato topping and very well seasoned filling. Cod was perfectly flakey and tender. Spicy slaw good too. Would definitely recommend.

Good food and beer selection, nice atmosphere a good North American impression of a UK pub. Lots of room for families or large groups, unlike a pub in Ireland

We ate lunch here with friends. Everyone ordered one of the Irish specials. The lamb stew was the favorite although the shepherds pie and the fish and chips were also good. Nice Irish beer as well.
