Good pub fare

Good food. Service was a little lacking in attention and it feels more of a pub than a place for food. But - I would go back. It's a nice setting and the food was tasty.

Visited Crockets recently with my wife for a meal. The food & service was excellent. It was very busy, but our meal arrived in good time & the service was very good, checking us & seeing if we needed drinks or wine. A very good dining experience. Would definitely recommend if dining out in ballina.
