Went to an open mic night here just for the craic. Music started at 9pm later than expected but this was the established order. Quality of performers mixed as one would expect, but big tick from me for novelty value. Telly in background played old...More

Visited on an evening before a football match. We were made very welcome by friendly bar staff and also spoken to by local drinkers. Good range of beers. I believe they have live music most nights and it is very popular. Clean and welcoming.
