One of the best hamburgers I've tasted...French fries, fried pickles, grilled cheese are very good. The corned beef sandwich was good, but not excellent. Staff was helpful and friendly. I put Busker's in my Newport notes as a place to return to.

We went in for sandwiches, but ended up ordering the more Irish fare. Irish relish was a unique yummy flavor, perfect for the Scotch eggs. Brown bread is homemade, cottage pie had a rich, saveory flavor!
