good service

Went on an extended family set dinner to this restaurant. Were seated quickly and service was good. In the main the food was of excellent quality but our vegetarian cohort were not absolutely impressed. Would go again but would not be my first choice.

Ate here for the first time earlier this week. The decor is clean and modern and plenty of money has been spent on remodelling the whole space, both upstairs and downstairs. The food is tasty but nothing exceptional. Will have to eat there again and choose something else from the menu in order to get a better sense of the... More

Had a meal here last Saturday. The new premises are tastefully decorated with a nice patio area out the back. The service was excellent and the food was both beautifully presented and nicely cooked. I had the nicest garlic mushrooms ever, not soggy or greasy, followed by fish, chips and mushy peas. I wouldn't normally eat mushy peas but everything... More

Have eaten in McLearys many times, but first time to sample their new, larger location. 4 of us ate from the Value Menu & all cleared our plates! The service was excellent, the wine list was extensive, interesting & good value and the dining areas are much brighter than previous location. The pipe band playing on the quayside was an... More

The only bad thing about this restaurant is that we didn't get ant seafood as crabs as expected in their motto. But what we had instead was very nice! we started with a seafood chowder and breaded garlic mushrooms as starters. As mains, we had chicken curry with mango chutney for me, and haddock for my husband. it was good.... More

We came with a 9 months old baby, they prepared amazing food for us (awesome French soup, calamari, haddock and a Baileys creme brûlée with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and the most delicious biscuit I have ever eaten) and for our daughter they prepared an amazing mashed potato and carrots and some butter bread! The kindness!
