A popular buffet lunch is served on Sundays and children's entertainment is provided. Most of the suppliers are local and ensure that the restaurant gets the freshest locally grown and reared produce, delivered daily. The aim of Crawford's is to remain one of the most popular restaurants in Cork by offering value for money and a friendly yet professional service in a comfortable and relaxing setting.

Just a quick review to note we had an excellent day. We had a private area, which allowed the little monsters to mess without disturbing anyone. Staff were excellent - available without intruding. Service top notch - have never seen it so good anywhere else and food was quality. Highly recommended for extended family get-togethers
