It’s very hidden as there’s a lot of scaffolding covering it which is a shame because it’s a lovely little pub. It’s near the spire and just off a very busy shopping street. You’ll get a few looks in there from the locals, once they...More

Tiny but encapsulates all the features you want and need in a real drinking pub.Photos and pictures of the great and the good from Ireland's past plus a fine pint.Don't be deterred by the elderly locals hogging the barstools they won't bite.Love this place.
