I knew it was going to be a good night at The Causeway & Finn McCool’s Irish Bar as soon as I saw the fairy lights. I got an instant feeling of warmth and comfort making me so excited to just sit back, relax and enjoy some delicious food.
I started with the cocktail menu and my eyes lit a little brighter each time I read a different option. The Pimm’s Jug was to die for, it was like drinking a bunch of fragrant flowers. My favourite beverage was the new Finns Dark & Stormy. It was very balanced in flavour, easy to drink and the fact that it was served in a bright red Sailor Jerry’s Can just topped it off! There is also an extensive choice of wine, champagne and beer for those who aren’t so adventurous.
Waiting at the bar for my drink there was this beautiful shiny bowl of nuts and it wasn’t until I went to grab a few that I realised they were warm! Pre-Warning: Once you start eating them, you will not stop.
One of my favourites on the menu was the Cheese Burger sliders. They were so tasty with a toasted brioche bun. Although small, the Angus beef patty sure packed a punch in flavour. Boston Fries are all kinds of scrumptious. The thick, hand cut chips dipped in the curry sauce, topped with bacon, cheese and shallots were to die for.
A highlight for me was the Salt & Pepper squid. The squid was so fresh, the batter was so light and crispy once dipped into the aioli I had to go back for seconds, and thirds… and fourths. Finally, the Buffalo Wings are not for the faint hearted. Although I am not a huge fan of spicy food it had a great flavour and the blue cheese sauce complimented it really nicely.
The best way to describe the food of The Causeway & Finn McCool’s Irish Bar is modern, hearty Irish pub food. Grab some friends, take them to The Causeway & Finn McCool’s Irish Bar and have a great night out with divine food and drink.
