It's right off the speed line and a great place to stop for a great Guinness and some yummy food. Feels like you are walking into a pub in Ireland and there's always a soccer game to catch on tv!

Piled in at 7am to watch the EPL, place was already busy with fans from both teams. A good atmosphere, service was prompt and attentive. Breakfast menu is quite varied and lots of good choices. Food came out well cooked and hit the spot!
