Not busy at all for a Sunday morning! Ordered a med-well bacon cheeseburger. It was so rare, so they made another one. Thick fries were good and you can't go wrong with a Mack & Jack's African Amber.

I've traveled some. Northern hemisphere. Southern hemisphere. This pub is the real deal, complete with cursing Irish waitress. The potato triangles with the cheese dip are the best potato I've eaten in any form. There are big rooms and small rooms, loud or intimate. Probably...More

We were looking for a good place for breakfast Sunday morning and came across a full pub watching an English premier league game. The Irish breakfast was excellent and would get again. Great staff.

We blend the best of the old with the best of the new. Our decor and friendly staff evoke images of the great old pubs of Ireland whereas our style of operating - our music, food, beverages - connects more so with the contemporary pubs and bars of modern Ireland.
