"Thursday Trad Nights"

Well can I just say that, the food is delicious! We ate in the bar and from the minute you walk in the main entrance, you're greeted by a warm friendly smile and the service is prompt and quick, yet you don't feel rushed like in some places. The plus side was that when we were just getting our dessert a traditional Irish music band started to set up and what began as a quick bite to eat ended up as one of the best nights we have had in a long time. Great Atmosphere...Definitely recommend it!
