We stopped here on our way to Limerick last week amd were greeted by a lovely lady who seated us and gave us the menu which had a good choice. Really nice decor. The food is nice, I had the organic sausages and mash with Guinness gravy, good portion and tasted very nice. I would be happy to return.

We stopped here for lunch last Sunday on the way to The Europe Hotel in Fossa. We were greeted by the owner at the door and promptly shown to a table, given the menus and explained the specials. After a few minutes we realised the table, next to the entrance, was a little too cold for our liking, so we... More

I ate here about 2 hours ago. It was terrible. Greeted by an insincere husband and wife. I ended up paying 25euro for a steak which frankly was off and I returned. Becuase the mal only came with 3 baby potaties, I asked for me. I was happy to receive 3 more ( as the steak was inedible). They then... More

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

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
