Had a family meal here recently. Years since we had been here before. Our group had various starters - all very happy with same. We then had a mix of steak and fish dishes for main course - again all delighted with same. Desserts also lovely. Staff very friendly and attentive albeit they don't wear name badges, so we can't...

I've been here a few times over the years and the food is always consistently good. I especially love the garlic mushrooms to start. The menu should please most as it's fairly comprehensive and there's also an early bird menu

Delicious and well thought out menu. Everything sounded so good, It took me awhile to decide what to get so I will have to go back to try everything else. We had three courses with wine and everything was perfect. The staff were lovely and very attentive.

Popped in on the recommendation of O'Grady's as we caught them between lunch and dinner service. Lovely seafood, excellent wine and beer. We had local mussels and my parents had an interesting main course of plaice stuffed with cod. The staff was lovely and very attentive and we did not have to wait for a table or for service. Highly... More

Popped in for lunch in this cosy popular pub. I had the smoked haddock mornay and my wife the haddock. All was very good and would recommend. There is also a part to the rear that is suitable for kids.

I haven't been in Donnellys in a long time, but have eaten there twice for Sunday lunch in the past few weeks. Service was excellent, food was good and as we had the lunch special it was good value. I will definitely be returning again in the new year.

Visited Donnelly's and found the food excellent. Service was satisfactory, but well worth a visit for the quality of the food. Steak and fish dishes were superb, will return in the very near future.

We went into this pub for lunch & was nicely surprised by the menu. Homemade burgers, which the boys in our group had. Fresh mussels for the adults in the group. Food way above average for a pub. Free wifi is advertised, though the 2 boys in the group couldn't get it. That may have been due to signal as... More
