this is a great location on the Shannon and we have planned our boating trips around this restaurant as it was a highlight of the last night. This year we arrived at the end of the Easter break to discover the restaurant had been taken over by a chain since October 2014. Whilst employees were familiar, the menu was a... More

All I can say is three little pigs! 3 types of pork on the one plate with plenty of veg. All the food I saw served here was top quality and reasonably priced. €22 for a 4 course meal or €15 for a main only. You won't beat this place in Shannon Bridge.

The food and menu was good and good value fore money but the service was dreadful , staff would give the impression of little or no training , more interested in clearing other tables than looking after their customers we were not asked 'is everything ok' we won't be...

It has been many years since I frequented the Old Fort so when my friend suggested we try it again under new management of Parkers, I agreed. It was lovely to see a healthy crowd on a Saturday night-many of which were locals. The building is beautiful, warmed by stoves & atmospheric with many lit candles. The 4 course menu... More
