    An Irish pub in its truest sense. Great atmosphere, fantastic bangers, and a large selection of British beers. Come during the week (during a soccer/rugby match) for the best experience.

    Ate dinner tonight only to be surprised when the bill arrived it was cash only. No sign on the door. Very inconvenient to have to go around the corner to use an ATM.

    Nice Irish pub! They are cash only and there is an ATM onsite. Draught beers are a bit pricey at 6.00 per pint. Food is good quality with decent portions. Put this on your list to check off.

    Tip the bartenders and staff well, as they are the nicest in Boston. Also, high five Mayor Thomas Towell and he might buy you a Narragansett.

    The Field has a community vibe and a Cork-themed Irish decor. Plus, at strictly 21-plus, the college crowd is nonexistent. Instead, it's an after-work hangout and meeting place for locals. Read more
