Best Steaks ever !!

Had read about this place on Trip Advisor. Stayed in B&B nearby and went for dinner. Ordered the steaks and they were amazing. So tasty. Staff were excellent, very pleasant and friendly. Would highly recommend it.

Stopped here to have something small to eat as we were having dinner in the slieve Russell later on. The place was quiet. Relaxed. Clean. The music playing on the system belied the traditional fell off the pub. Ordered or food and drinks. Arrived fairly soon afterwards. It was really nice. Staff were really pleasant which is what is important

Four of us visited the Angler's Rest on a busy Saturday night. The staff explained that they were very busy, they supplied the drinks straight away and kept us informed of how long we would have to wait. The menu was quite limited, three of us opted for the burger. The burger was really good and it was supplied with... More

Had a meal there and the food was as expected, traditional Irish grub. We were there on a quiet mid-week afternoon, so there was not much life in the place, might be great for nightlife.

We visited this bar/restaurant when we stayed at Slieve Russell. I really couldn't fault it. The food is very tasty and the portions are huge. The steak burger is the best I've tasted and must weigh a pound!

Stayed at Slieve Russell hotel and a party if 8 of us called in for an evening meal. Did not need to book but meals and service were excellent. Minute steaks were massive and recommended. Portions very large. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back. Nice friendly restaurant with a good atmosphere.

Excellent food and even better service. Stayed in Slieve Russell & decided to go in to Ballyconnell for a meal and chose this place. Right from the moment we arrived we were made extremely welcome. Menu was great and offered fantastic value for money. Our taxi driver warned us the portions were huge...he was 100% correct. Minute steaks were bigger... More

We ate here on Sunday night and although the staff were apologetic for the wait- it still took a little while to get our order in and get served. The food was good though and we really enjoyed our meal. It is worth the stop but try to time it at a time when it is not so busy.

I used to be a regular at this place a few years ago when I worked locally. decided to call in recently with friends because I remember the steaks being good. We called in and had a drink before our food. My friends pint didn't taste right so he said it to the bar men (the bar men were hipster... More
