Ate here while searching for accommodations in Galway. We took are time relaxing, enjoying lunch and tea. There was no rush and the waitress was wonderful. She even gave advice on where to look. The service was great and the food was nice as well. The dish I had was very much comfort food but the menu looked like they... More

Love this place for food because you will always get great service and food. Nothing is a problem for the staff and they are very friendly. For a pub that is located just off Shop Street/Eyre Square the price charged is reasonable. This place has gotten busier so you may have to wait up to 10 minutes for a table... More

This place is well situated in Galway City, food is reasonably priced and the service is very efficient. I would recommend either booking a table in advance or making sure you go in before you are hungry. The waiting time is only 5 - 10 minutes so it's not too bad. The cocktails are good as well.

The best service I have experienced in a long time. We only had to wait a few minutes for a table and even within that time, the staff had brought stools to seat us at the bar.

Menu was very good something to please everyone however the steak burger I got was of extremely poor quality, obviously homemade but from the cheapest minced beef. It lacked seasoning and extremely fatty.I was very disappointed. The service on the other hand was excellent and for this reason I would return to try something else. Great atmosphere.

My favourite place to eat in galway witout a doubt! A great place to have a catch up with friends over a delicious lunch or dinner! A must try are the chicken gougons and of course a mixed berry daiquiri to finish the meal! Staff are very pleasant and will try and accomadate you no matter how busy it is.
