Hidden behind a thriving vine, which threatens to take over each summer, this charming 250-year old pub is soothingly dark inside making a fine contrast to the cheerful eccentricity of the current owner, Michael Hough.
A world famous music pub, it’s authentic and unique, family-run and with a wealth of Irish art on the walls. It’s a great local and also popular with people from the river cruisers, who come up from the harbour for pints, music and craic - for over thirty years there’s been traditional Irish music here every night from March to November, and on Friday, Saturday & Sunday in winter.
Nothing ever changes much here, although they did add a beer garden when the no-smoking law came in.
Children and pets welcome. Open 10.30 am - 1 am. No food. Traditional music nightly. Closed 25 Dec & Good Fri.
