Beer garden is great for a warm evening, even with no Sun. Could do to have a small bar menu like toasted sandwiches etc. Cocktails are a favourite and atmosphere and bands at weekends are great too

Very nice pub. Sports on the TV, several TV's. One of the best smoking areas I have seen. And a beer garden that's second to none.

Best pub in Newbridge for any football game. A great atmosphere to be had on each visit but especially if Kildare is playing in the Newbridge pitch.
