A great local pub with comfortable seating, lively crowd and friendly waiting staff. The pub backs onto the Botanic Gardens so we'd recommend you take a stroll and then go for a (perfect) pint.

Pub Grub


Take away service Luscious Dublin Bay prawns, succulent oysters, melt in the mouth mussels, mouth-watering mackerel…just some of the delicious seafood you’ll find on menus around Ireland.

Irish people love to eat seafood when dining out; in fact, unlike our European neighbours, we eat more seafood outside the home. Perhaps this is a testament to the quality of our seafood restaurants. And for many visitors, a trip to Ireland wouldn’t be complete without sampling a few oysters and sinking a pint of the black stuff.

Have eaten here plenty of times and although I preferred the old menu, the food is generally good. This was a Saturday afternoon visit on a sunny day and the place was busy with a communion party. I had fish and chips and my dinner date had the burger. All very tasty, the fish was really soft and fresh. food wise the usual high standard.

Visited here after having been to the Botanic . Great choice of food and no real delay in the Carvery, and what we got was a decent sized portion which was excellent value. The staff were excellent and one chapwas on top of his game and seemed to know everyone by name. He even asked us if everything was ok and gave us complimentary coffee To conclude great atmosphere and value and I will visit again

Staff in here were very helpful to us as my sister can be a tad on the demanding side. They were super helpful, friendly and efficient. We had a Saturday carvery which looked amazing but was a little bit greasy for me. Had beef & black bean sauce and didn't eat it. The chips were nice but the meat was fatty and tough. Niec set up & lovely staff though.

Arrived at 230 to a neighbours funeral meal. A very friendly chef went through the whole menu with me. I chose a beef and guinness pie which I really enjoyed. I had a look at the evening menu which was very good indeed. I will return again.

Usually visit here when the carvery is on but they also do an evening menu as well. It gets quite busy for lunches. There is a very good selection for the carvery and the portions are usually quite good. Food wise I would consider it good hearty food, the gravy is good & they love there mushy peas! Not a bad spot for a bite.

Went here with my parents and sister on a Sunday afternoon for carvery. Similarly to other pub grub scenarios, they offer half plates which doesn't mean half price but still a generous portion. The service was quick without being abrupt and the cashier even offered to carry my full tray to the table for me. I would recommend this pub for Sunday lunches - delicious with a wide and varied menu.

Visited here on a Friday evening. Had a lovely meal. They offer a free beer, mineral or glass of wine with each main course bought I was with my husband and brother in law and they didnt want the beer/wine. I had 3 glasses of Pinot Grigio which were very nice. They were free because we bought 3 main courses. The 3 main courses were very nice. Would recomment this pub for grub.

We stopped in here on the June Bank Holiday Monday for something to eat. We each had a half portion from the carvery. The food was excellent as usual. The half portion was excellent value for a substantial plate of food. The pub was clean with good space to get a table and eat in comfort. I would definitley recommend the carvery here and look forward to stopping in there again.

I went here for sunday dinner a couple of times. The sunday carvery is quite nice. The meat is good, and the vegetables were tasty. A bit pricey, but worth it for a Sunday meal.

Have gone here quite a few times as its my local pub. Atmosphere is good on friday evening especially when the band comes on later in the evening. I have ate a few things from the menu and overall it isnt that great for the money your paying. I have recieved soup that was too cold had to send it back to be heated in the microwave. The brown bread is cheap bread bought in. The pasta can be overwelmed in the cream sauce. The chips are good though. My other half had the steak and didnt think it was great. Overall good bar not great for food should revamp the menu and bring in some proper homemade cooking not bought in grub!
