We took the advice of the receptionist at the Studebaker Museum. She recommended this restaurant. It was a welcoming place. The waitress Tara was very pleasant. The food was good.

Stopped in for lunch on my way to the airport. So glad I did. Food, wait-staff (Tara), and service all first rate. Tried the Irish stew. Had to check outside to see if I was still in S. Bend, and not in Ireland.

Worth a visit for anyone in the area. Great atmosphere. Food was okay - Good comfort food. The server was a little a surly. Definitely acted like we were an inconvenience to his day. I’m a low expectations guy but I noticed it.

In South Bend for game weekend. Small, comfortable, step into my home type atmosphere. Bangers and Mash was fantastic. Great imported and local beer selection. No domestic beers. Would stop on again.

My wife and I stopped in before attending a Brian Wilson concert at the Morris. Always get the fish &a chips. DELICIOUS!!! Great place to go. Keep in mind that this pub is quite small and you might have to share a table with strangers...More
