Called in on speck for a quick beer after a hot day in New York. The barman made us totally welcome as soon as we sat down at the bar. The bar selection was excellent and we even got a free shot with our first drink. The friendliness of the Irish shinned through as Dermot and Craig served the drinks with the crack to which the Irish are famous for ! We returned a couple of nights later and felt at home as soon as we opened the door. Thank boys you run a great bar.
Food was good and reasonably priced but a group of young, loud, obnoxious foul talking punks of Middle Eastern heritage spoiled our whole evening and left us with a very bad impression of New York City and all the foreigners (legal or illegal) that live/visit there. We mentioned the LOUD and foul language the group used to the waiter but he just said "I know" but didn't do anything about it - he was young so I guess he didn't know how to handle the situation. Every other word began with 'f' - the lone girl in the group of 5 boys was the worst offender. If people want to use foul language that's up to them but in a public place must they be so LOUD! People just don't have respect for others anymore. We hurried up and ate and left in a hurry. It's a shame that other guests and their behavior/language dictate whether you have an enjoyable time or not. I gave this pub a poor rating even though the food was good because I think someone working in the restaurant should have said something to the loud-mouthed, foul talking punks! We've been in plenty of bars and we know and expect people to use foul language, but this was the worst we've EVER experienced - every other word and from a young girl??? Disgusting!
