very large servings for breakfast. The pancakes are excellent indeed. My only criticism is they only serve barista coffee- absolutely no freshly brewed coffee!!

We ordered a full Irish breakfast and hash browns with eggs and bacon at 1050. We only got our food at 1140 and we were so late I did t want to complain and order again . I didn’t get hash browns or home made beans the eggs were over cooked and the toast was cheap sliced pan . My husbands full Irish was tasteless and over cooked . It was so expensive and disappointing I was too upset to say anything and just wanted to leave . It was our only time out for Christmas and his birthday and it was really bad service and food.

Great wings but burger was very dry and chips had been left out. Stick to the wings and you'll be happy though

Very slow to be shown to table despite confirming I'd be there @ 2pm & arrived at 1.58 pm. A couple were left freezing outside door while we waited inside. 45 min wait for food. Food was good, service left bad taste. Waiters need to be trained in proper service, perhaps they don't enjoy working there hence the 'couldn't care less attitude'. My second visit, gave them a second chance, service and wait to be seated unacceptable both times I'm sorry to say

Really slow service, we were there during lunch break and it took 45min to get Sandwich, even after following up with waiter it was another 15mins. We then had to rush eating. And go looking for the bill

Lovely Birthday celebration meal with our daughter- five of us in total. We were very well looked after, plenty of space between us & other diners. Food was delicious- the chicken wings are nearly a meal in itself!! The Christmas Burger was a big hit too. We would highly recommend a visit.

The restaurant was freezing cold. A sandwich was almost €15 and came with a few tortilla chips, would expect fries as a side for €15.

Booking, though confirmed earlier, was not on their system so waited 15 mins to be seated.
Food average for price and mixed temperatures when arrived.
Disappointing experience.

Staff went out of their way to be nice to my daughter and friend who were at their own table. They have Down’s Syndrome. Staff were patient and kind. Her Dad and I were at a separate table but able to observe . Thanks
