This is a lovely venue. We dined in the bar and the place had a lovely atmosphere. Couples, groups and families. Several menu options include daily specials and a la carte. I had delicious vegetable soup with brown bread followed by Guinness and beef pie. Very tasty food, friendly staff and reasonable prices. Would recommend!
