Yay, I love the Irish.
Reminiscent of an Irish pub
It was cool and for a minute I forgot I was in Stamford, in the downtown.
I had Bangers and Mash. That is the one that looks like the starfish in my picture. On top is the pork sausage (soft and really juicy), on top of mashed potatoes, on top of green peas, with a red onion sauce. It took me back to my travels in England. I felt like the atmosphere was familiar.
My other half had Tigin Steak and Frites Salad
flat iron steak over fresh arugula, sweet corn, bell peppers tossed with red wine vinaigrette, topped with marinated tomatoes, fontina cheese over pomme frites
The pomme frites were on the side. It would have been cool on the plate as well. Check the picture out.
I enjoyed my meal and would visit again. I also had an apple cider. It was like a pale ale. I asked one of the girls what they had–she went on like mad scientists and I had to stop her and asked for anything with a MALT, she said not, but that they had cider.
I have to say the customer service was good and the place was what I would have expected. I will have to revisit to try some other things on the menu–small limited traditional fare, but I like the feeling in the restaurant. I am a little mad that the menu only had about 4-6 traditional meals. Maybe it does not fly with the people in the area, or are there only a few really Irish dishes. I guess I will have to research.
Check out a PUB and have a classic–Fish and Chips. Let me know about your pub-bing adventures. ( Irish, English, Welsh)
