  • Good for:seriously tasty pub grub!

Let’s be clear: Fibbers is a little, Irish pub that is always filled with sports lovers and rowdy locals and travellers. At first glance it’s much like any other Irish pub in this town, and, I suppose, the world. There’s nothing wrong with that – most of us appreciate the no nonsense approach of little pubs like this, where you drop in for a pint of Guinness and a gander at the footy/rugby/soccer on the telly. But why is Fibbers our top pick? Well, not only have you got the usual, with a little beer garden out the back, but here you get some of the best pub grub you’ve ever tasted.

The usual suspects are present on the menu: a pot pie, lamb shanks, the steak sandwich, battered fish and chips, and they really are top notch. There is a focus on steaks, too, and I’ll tell you why. Fibber McGee’s also own and operate an organic beef farm, and they dry-age their own beef. The farm is just an hour away meaning the meat is always fresh, and is set up to supply exclusively to the pub. That is serious dedication to providing the best nosh!

On occasion there will be a bit of a wait for food, which staff will be clear about in the beginning, but when you bite into that juicy steak it will be well worth it. Claire.
