Outdoor patio in the summer is great. We had burgers(very good)and some had Fish and chips.also very good,but small portion. Outside in the summer is much nicer,than inside as it can get quite noisy. Service was also very good and very attentive to your needs.

Three friends met up after a year and enjoyed the Boxty of the day and the pan-fried haddock, along with some drinks. We talked forever and never felt pressured to leave...our waitress was very friendly and accommodating.
