A group of 40 of us had tea and scones (scrumptious!) in the morning and returned for lunch. The young ladies serving were really friendly- nothing was too much trouble. No delays at all. The beef on the bone was just mouth-watering and the chicken and salmon excellent also. Quite reasonable, given the quality of the food. Thank You! Look... More

Had lunch here with some friends while traveling through Wicklow town. The interior is very nice and staff were friendly. I ordered the posh fish bap - the goujons were great, but together with the bap it was a bit too dry - probably better served on their own.

We hope you'll visit again if... More

Stayed 4 days room was never cleaned , bedding was not changed and we had to sleep with the smell of drains, even after asking politely nothing was done. The person who recommended this place was totally let down.

Great pub grub with locally sourced food. It was lovely to eat outside and soak in the atmosphere of Dubliners relaxing with their families and friends and tourists pleased they had picked a decent eaterie. We went there twice, and were not disappointed.
