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

Stopped here with a friend on the road to the West. What a lovely place. The very charming owner invited us to sit at a nice table by the fire, and told us the specials. We chose to have the seafood gratin which was delicious. Just perfect with a chilled glass of Sauvignon blanc. We really enjoyed our visit. Our... More

Stopped here on way to Kerry and it's amazing how things change. This place used to be so good but no. Mushroom soup tasted of nothing literally no flavour at all, very odd. My wife got a prawn and potato tart with a wine sauce. Served in I think a scallop shell ( these used to be ashtrays one time)... More

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
