We came for the snug run which is every Thursday. If you aren't in on it, you should be. It is a scenic 5K around Cheeseman Park and past the Botanic Gardens. After running it 10 times you get a free shirt. Everyone starts and finishes at the Irish Snug, which is a pretty cool spot.
We tried some of the pasta and salad which was available to the runners but were still hungry. The lack of 2 stars is for the service here. When we finally found a server, a brunette named..Larkin? she brought us not enough menus. We ordered beers, (awesome beers on tap by the way!) they took a while to show up. She then got our order, the table also ordered soup, fish & chips, & wings.
When it started taking a while we decided to order more beers, also took some time. Someone else brought out the food, it was hot and delicious! By this time though we really had to get going, we didn't plan on staying at this spot for so long. We asked for our bills by the person who brought our food. They didn't tell our server.
Our server, who instead of coming to check on how the food was, was constantly snatching her tips off of tables who had left and seeing how much she got, literally counting the bills. She also ran our cards incorrectly. Instead of taking any ownership and responsibility, she blamed the kitchen and being understaffed for the poor service. At least she said sorry, but I have been a server before, you take ownership when things are going wrong.
