Came at lunch time but a great little find. Food limited to toasted sandwiches though. Great little pub with Kilkenny and Guinness as you would expect. Will come back one night. Hidden Gem

Visited this bar over Xmas and it has a great vibe with live music and a chilled crowd. The Guinness is cold and tasty and the bar staff friendly.
