THE CRITERION

Kiss me I’m Irish. A phrase frequently coined during a night out at the Criterion. Owner, Pat Gallagher knows Ireland and boy does he do green well. Enjoy a traditional feast with ‘Something Irish’ from their menu, including Pork Sausage and Corned Beef (the butcher’s secret and trademark recipe). To wash it down? You can’t go past the black stuff. A pint of Guinness will do the trick. We promise once you go black you’ll never go back. It is said that a good Irish lad will drink a pint of Guinness leaving just seven rings. Two for the Father, two for the Son, two for the Holy Spirit and One for himself. So what’s your number? (TO)
