The Workman’s Friend
- Open Now
Went with friends for St. Pattys day. We were all slightly disappointed that they were only offering a limited menu, however we all found something to eat. One of my friends got fish and chips which she liked. She ate all the fish, but didnt finish the fries or the peas. My second friend got the Workmans burger and both of them said it was one of the best burgers they both have ever had. I dont eat meat, so I didnt try it. I had really wanted the purple potato gnocchi and or some mashed potatoes and cabbage or some other vegetable vegetarian dish, but they refused. So I went with the grilled cheese and it wasnt anything to write home about. I had the potato leek soup, which tasted more like flavored mashed potatoes, but it was ok because I was craving mashed potatoes. The staff was cordial. The ambiance and decor was really nice. It reminded me of being back in Belfast. I really liked sitting by the fireplace as I was cold and it warned me up! It was quite clean and the restrooms were sufficient. Overall, I would visit again when they are offering the full menu or if I was talking friends to the bar- the bar is partially outside and fully stocked!
Definitely a great place to stop after a hard days work on a Monday. Great drinks and pub food. I tried the beef stew and a side salad. The salad came in a Togo cup but it was delicious either way. Definitely stopping by here again.
Needed to get out my house and this was a perfect little place to go. I was with my friend and we sat at the bar, not overly crowded but full. Met some amazing puerile that we talked to while there having drinks. I got hungry and ordered the curry vegetables I saw another patron order because it looked so good. The portion is enough for two people. Very delicious and glad I ordered it. Might need another night out when my work travel is done.
The full Irish breakfast was best Ive had in years! Too many other places think the English/Irish breakfast platters are a bunch of separate ingredients slapped on a single plate. Workmans Friend got it right, with quality ingredients cooked together for proper cohesion. Very nice atmosphere too. The cocktails were okay, but I feel they were overpriced being rather small and light on the liquor.
Fun bar, great street counter. Seems like a great place to meet friends and share a drink or two. Bartender friendly, good service and suggestions. Would really like classic cherries instead of the fruit cocktail version for my upscale drink. Will give them another chance to get it right though!
