The Irish Rover Restaurant Review: Owner Michael Reidy, a native of County Clare, presides over the series of comfortable rooms, one with a working fireplace, and a menu anchored by traditional pub fare. The place may make you long for cool, damp days when you can linger here over a pint of Fuller's ESB or Guinness and tuck into smoked salmon with soda bread, a Scotch egg or two, or mussels steamed in ale. Traditional main dishes include fish ‘n’ chips, cottage pie, and Guinness beef stew. On the sandwich side, you'll find a fine Irish club made with Limerick ham and sliced chicken and the Irish BLT which adds salmon rillettes to the standard ingredients. For a light meal, try a bowl of leek and potato soup and a side of Irish bacon or the prawn and cashew salad with warm lemony dressing. And, yes, you'll find raspberry trifle and sticky toffee pudding among the desserts. Irish breakfast is served for Saturday brunch.
