Overpriced mediocre food served in a tired setting. Staff are good but that's were the positive experience ends. One to avoid.

Visited recently with a work colleague from England. We stopped for Lunch, on arrival we were greeted by a well dressed gentleman armed with menus who escorted us to a cramped table by the front window. Having ordered, Open Crab Sandwich, and Open Baked Ham and Cheddar Cheese Sandwich, we enjoyed the food, however, we felt uncomfortable as the over... More

Almost all the positive reviews of this place have confused it with another place of the same name in Dublin. This place is rubbish - we drove 30 miles out of our way because my partner remembered nice meals there as a kid. It bills itself as a gastro pub but has no veggie option on the menu - they... More

So disappointed that I didn't view the comments of this pub/restaurant before I actually decided to dine here as it was not a good experience. One starter, two mains and a glass of wine totaling €40.80 - Rip off!! Wouldn't mind so much if food was good but not the case. Chowder tasted like some form of stew. Before I... More

Stopped there for lunch. Worst toasted sandwich I've ever seen. How they could charge €5.95 is unbelieveable. Kids got Goujons and chips that were way overlooked. In fairness, the chowder wasn't bad but we won't be back. Very bad value.

My husband got cod and chips that cost €16.95. Chips were not even fresh, they were taken from a... More

Having been here in past and thought it was just ok, we decided to give this place another look as we were in the area. Old themed bar with lots of antique items scattered around. We both order starters and main. I had the chowder and half ceaser salad for my other good half. Salad seemed ok, but my chowder... More
