Carol Barden of the Barden family, which owns and operates the pub, commented, "We were happy with the figures to year end 2017. We are very lucky to have a strong loyal customer base and a great hardworking team who deliver a good service day-in, day-out. Despite the many new offerings in the Dublin bar scene there is still a strong demand for the offerings of the traditional Irish bar."
