Popped in here for a mid-morning Irish breakfast and was blown away by the experience! Delicious, well presented food and attentive staff in a remarkable ex-bank building. They even kept the bank vaults downstairs. Highly recommended.

Thinking of booking a table here on a Saturday night after a tour. Would jeans be acceptable attire or do people dress up more for the mezzanine?
