Great pub for the "craic" always packed and great fun. They even have a Bitcoin machine. Never a dull moment with the crowd in there.

Had a couple of beers in "The Thirsty" with some locals, very friendly welcoming staff. Nicely priced, good spot to watch sport - particularly if travelling on your own I'd say.

I'll start with a positive - packed and a lively atmosphere. However, staff behind bar atrocious when I visited. Are they trained at all? Busy pub means lots of people to serve( and money for the business). My experience was that staff more interested in...More

Friendly staff and clientele. Popped in for a lunchtime drink, popped out several later. Just a one room bar and a good old fashioned type of pub. That's not to say the homemade shots are not bang up todate.
