We are a pub that takes pride in serving you in the style of a traditional irish pub whilst giving you the service you expect from a quality restaurant. A roaring log fire in Winter makes this a cosy place to spend an evening.


To satisfy your hunger our Sunday lunches cannot be bettered, epitomising the idea of the “Full Sunday Roast”. Our daily menu is extensive and anyone who has tried our speciality dishes will know that they are enormously satisfying and very tasty indeed.
