Wine List

We have an extensive list of wines from all over the world, with a variety of grape types, styles and prices.

We also have a small selection of Chateaux Vintage wines from the Bordeaux area which I personally source through auctions when visiting the area.

Our House Wines are chosen with quality in mind, not cost. To keep with the saying "you can always judge a restaurant by the quality of the table wines."

We also serve many wines and champagnes by the glass, including the popular "Crackpots Cocktail."

We often hold wine tasting evenings where we match the food with the wines.

These families eventually went into the wine trade worldwide are nowadays referred to as "The Irish Wine Geese." Their wines on our list are marked with a *.
