Went to a gourmet fish night Oct 10,food was excellent, with cheerful service at the table and bar, Fish is often overcooked and tasteless, all four of our meals were cooked to perfection. Have already booked for the next meal night

This is obviously a very old pub and has an old style feel... Not in a bad way! Also does food and lunch menu looked good, if not especially cheap. Hopefully will do even better with a brand new housing development next door.

A charming friendly local pub located close to Beacon Hill, and a short walk to Mount St Bernard Abbey. We offer a selection of real ales, with fine wine, a wide variety of ciders and whiskies. We are dog friendly (A selection of treats are kept behind the bar) and also child friendly, with a box of activities to keep them entertained. We are afraid we no longer offer food, but we have a variety of cobs at the weekend and if you would like to organise an event then we can cater for your needs.
